Gov. Schweitzer weighs in on partying with Lindsay Lohan

Posted By on Tue, Oct 2, 2012 at 11:15 AM

Gov. Brian Schweitzer often appears on cable television and, because of that, he gets to talk about a lot of different issues. Yesterday, while on CNN's "Situation Room," that issue became none other than Lindsay Lohan. The actress was allegedly assaulted by Christian LaBella, an aide for Rep. John Shimkus, R-Ill. LaBella was arrested Sept. 30 and charged with misdemeanor assault, but his arrest was later voided.

Schweitzer weighed in on the issue during the program's "Unsolicited Advice" segment.

Since we're not sure when we will ever be able to again link Montana's governor to LiLo, here's a transcript of what Schweitzer said, courtesy of Politico:

“I know you’re on vacation and everything,” said Schweitzer, a Democrat. “But really? Partying all night, partying all night in the hotel room of a famous partier and taking pictures and getting arrested because you’re taking pictures of this woman who — I’m not even going to mention her name because if you don’t know who was partying all night —”

“Li Lo,” interrupted CNN anchor Jessica Yellin, using Lohan’s gossip-page nickname.

“Lindsay Lohan. So to those staffers, leave the partying with Lindsay to the professionals,” Schweitzer said. “Do your day job.”

And those day jobs extend into the night, Schweitzer added.

“And by the way, Congress is not supposed to be a fraternity or a sorority, either. I mean, there’s supposed to be some decorum for people working for you. They ought to represent you wherever they’re at, day or night,” he said.
