Was Gerry Drunk? Beligerant? Both?

Controversy is swirling around a traffic citation Fairfax whatever Gerry Connolly was issued about a year ago. Sources tell us there might be something fishy going on. As FFX court records indicate, Connolly was pulled over and eventually cited by Police LT. Kitzerow of FFX Police.

Hmmm. Isn't it a little unusual that such a high-ranking office would write what turned out to be a minor speeding ticket?

Did officers on the scene call for a supervisor to deal with an unruly politician?

Or did Gerry have to call in a favor (and gawd knows he must have some chits to cash in) to avoid a more serious charge? Perhaps a charge that might have ended his public career if it was exposed?

Stay tuned, I hear Emily's List is on the case.
