MINOT, N.D. — Late last night, news broke about the arrest of Kirsten Baesler, North Dakota’s superintendent of public instruction, on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
Baesler is innocent until proven guilty, of course, but she’s already issued something of an admission of wrong-doing in a statement given to the press.
“I made a serious mistake last night. I let down my team at the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction. I let my family down. I let myself down. I am deeply sorry for my actions. I am going to learn from this, seek help, and focus on my well-being and health,” she said.
