The 61-year-old governor and her staff had served burgers at the annual Capital Lakefair last weekend and afterward went to a downtown Olympia bar called Hannah's to celebrate.
Gregoire says the man checking identifications at the door told her she couldn't get in without ID, even when others pointed out she's Washington's governor. So she went home, but her husband, Mike, went in.
The governor tells Seattle's KING-TV she feels complimented the bouncer thought she might be under 21.
Hannah's owner, Todd Ruzicka, says his 23-year-old part-time bouncer needs more training.
We say: 1) The bar owner should thank the bouncer for protecting him from a stiff fine. 2) The govenor's husband is a putz!
