A GOPoT Pol on the Err, Err --- Fast Track
Even Fox News reported this one accurately:
An Arizona state lawmaker bragged to a police officer that he sometimes drives more than double the speed limit - after he was pulled over for speeding.
Police stopped Representative Paul Mosley for going 97mph (156km/h) in a 55mph zone near Parker, Arizona, on 27 March in a filmed incident.
Mr Mosley said he would go "130, 140" mph on his way home and told the cop he had legislative immunity.
In the video, first reported by KLPZ, Mr Mosely tells the officer who pulled him over that he "didn't even notice" his speed because of his "nice" car.
"I'm trying to surprise my wife," he said, adding that he only speeds "as long as it's safe".
Mr Mosley also tells the La Paz County officer he does not break the law because he can, but "because I'm just trying to get home".
The deputy's written report also stated that the Republican lawmaker said they should not waste time on the incident since he has legislative immunity...
...the Arizona Fraternal Order of Police has revoked its endorsement of Mr Mosley due to his speeding.
In a statement, John Ortolano, the order's president, condemned the lawmaker's "recklessness, his demeanor and his utter disregard for the safety of the public".
