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.
