Rep. Rob Teilhet stated: "It's a no-brainer. No one should be above the law." The current law states that legislators "shall be free from arrest during sessions of the General Assembly, or committee meetings thereof, and in going thereto or returning there from, except for treason, felony, or breach of the peace."
Senate President Pro Tem Eric Johnson stated: "I think most citizens and an overwhelming number of legislators do not believe we are above the law and should be provided any special immunity from arrest. It's an embarrassment to everybody, and we don't believe we need this defense."
Another official added that most legislators were not even aware of the provision until now. In the latest arrest, Graves, who oversees the liquor industry regulations, refused a sobriety test.
