State Senate Candidate Arrested in DWI Case
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A south Des Moines candidate for the Iowa Senate has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.
The Des Moines Register says Tony Bisignano, a Democrat, acknowledged his mistake and took responsibility for his action.
A police report says the 61-year-old was arrested at 12:38 a.m. Monday in Altoona. The report says his blood alcohol level was 0.099 percent.
Bisignano has been arrested for operating while intoxicated twice before, most recently 12 years ago.
He's seeking the Senate seat of Democrat Jack Hatch, who is running for governor. The district includes the south side of Des Moines and the Sherman Hill neighborhood.
