Sen. Mike Crapo is about to dish out dating tips to teenagers.
The Idaho Republican is scheduled to appear at a middle school in Southeast Washington today to present a program about teen dating to students. But Crapo isn’t aiming to be the next Dr. Drew; he’ll help teach the “Love Is Not Abuse” program, which seeks to curtail violence in teenage dating.
Crapo is sponsor of a bill declaring February as National Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. The talk is part of a national campaign to derail teen dating abuse, and similar events are scheduled at schools throughout the country.
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
