OLYMPIA — Gov. Christine Gregoire was turned away from an Olympia bar when she couldn’t produce identification to prove she was over 21.
The 61-year-old governor told KING-TV she feels complimented the bouncer thought she might be under age.
Gregoire and her staff had served burgers at the annual Capital Lakefair last weekend and afterward went to the downtown Olympia bar called Hannah’s to celebrate.
Gregoire says the man checking identifications at the door said 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.
