JEFFERSON COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A former leading voice of Wisconsin’s Democratic Party is due in court September 5th for his third drunk driving offense.
Graeme Zielinski was arrested in Jefferson County in early June, and was later charged with a criminal OWI misdemeanor. He was also cited for driving a vehicle that was not registered.
The 40-year-old Zielinski is a former Milwaukee newspaper reporter.
He was let go as the Wisconsin Democrats’ chief spokesman earlier this year, after tweeting what he called comparisons between Republican Governor Scott Walker and Milwaukee serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
