Barbara Boxer aide charged with possession of pot

Boxer has accepted the aide's resignation, the senator's office said.

A senior aide for Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) was arrested Tuesday for attempting to bring marijuana into the Hart Senate Office Building, according to U.S. Capitol Police reports.

Marcus Stanley, who served as a senior economic adviser and at one time worked on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee — chaired by Boxer — was stopped by a police officer Tuesday morning when he allegedly tried to “remove and conceal” a leafy green substance from his pocket during a security screening at the Constitution Avenue door of the Hart building around noon, according to a Capitol Police report.

Police confiscated the substance, which later tested positive for marijuana, and Stanley quickly resigned.

“Marcus Stanley is no longer with this office,” Boxer spokesman Zachary Coile told POLITICO. “He submitted his resignation, and Sen. Boxer accepted it because his actions yesterday were wrong and unacceptable.”

Stanley has worked on Capitol Hill since 2007, according to financial disclosure records from Legistorm, and draws a six-figure salary. He has also worked for the Joint Economic Committee.

Marijuana possession has been an ongoing issue on the Capitol grounds, especially since the Capitol Visitor Center opened with additional screening facilities. In the past year and a half, more than a dozen people have been stopped for bringing marijuana into the Capitol complex, along with other drugs, including at least one instance involving cocaine, according to police records.

The legalization of marijuana is a hot issue in Boxer’s senatorial race as well as other California elections. California Democrats have been largely divided over Proposition 19, a ballot question that would legalize marijuana and allow the government to impose taxes on pot. Boxer and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) have been opposed to the measure.

This is not the first time a member of Boxer’s senior staff has been arrested. Senior policy adviser Jeffrey Rosato, who also worked on the EPW committee, was fired in 2008 after he was arrested and charged with the receipt and distribution of child pornography.

Stanley is the fourth Hill aide to be arrested by Capitol Police this year, according to an analysis by POLITICO.

Couldnt possibly care less. Guy has resigned so it's a complete non-issue. To me, its the same as if the aide tried to bring in a 12 pack of beer.

I am torn, first off fuck Boxer. Second off fuck anyone dumb enough to bring drugs into a federal building, state building, or municipal property. Seriously your an idiot for doing that. The part that has me torn is I no longer support the WOD, and think the shit should be legalized, however even it were legalized you should wait till you get home to bake your brains. Fucking shithead.

Don't rip on Boxer. She's a gun rights advocate. (She has her permit to carry.)

I won't throw stones; I'd probably end up smoking pot too if I had to deal with her everyday.

12 people arrested for bringing drugs into a building with security screening? you don't see one arrest a month at most court facilities for that and that's with moronic druggies facing charges going in and out


I'm betting that after the anthrax scare they probably have the sniffer technologies that most county courthouses don't have.s

Big deal. The President of the United States wrote a book in which he confessed to using cocaine when he was in college. Yet, today, he directs the Drug Enforcement Administration, which arrests and incarcerates young men just like him, who do the same thing he did when he was their age.

I'd have to be stoned 24/7 to work for someone as stupid as Barbara Boxer.

Obama - dope smoking coke user
W - alcoholic coke user
Clinton - non-inhaling doper, who knows what else
Bush Sr. - prescription drug abuser
Carter - stoner

But forgetting you're holding while attempting entry of the Hart Senate Office Building is kind of funny.
The kind of thing a stoner would do.
