In Kingsport, Tennessee, former Mount Carmel Vice Mayor William Blakely is accused of distracted driving. No he was not texting or reading while driving. That would actually be an improvement according to others drivers. Rather, other drivers accused him of exposing himself and masturbating while driving.
Kelly Street reported “At over 90 miles per hour, he had his penis out [the window]… he was masturbating… and that’s when it got really, really bad. I wouldn’t look over any more, and I wrote his tag number down on my hand, which I believe he noticed, and he exited very quickly.” I am not sure how Blakely would have physically succeeded in driving while actually extending his member out the windows. That would require not only a fair degree to flexibility but endowment.
Yet, other drivers like Deborah Sturgill said that “I was scared that I was gonna wreck, he was gonna cause me to wreck.”
The witnesses told police that Blakely would first get their attention by honking and pulling into their lane. He would allegedly make gestures of begging to ask them to expose themselves.
Police says that they received dozens of calls about such conduct over three or four years from alleged victims of ages from 16 to 65.
Blakely is now charged with indecent and reckless endangerment, and criminal attempt to commit aggravated assault. I guess that is no DWM, driving while masturbating provision.
It will be interesting if Blakely claims that, as does Anthony Weiner, that it was really the technology of the car that prompted him to expose himself. In any case, Weiner shows that exposing yourself to unconsenting women should not be a barrier to public office.
