Seen today in Sausalito: Poor positioning of a campaign poster reveals the truth...
In May 2007 State Sen. Carole Migden drove erratically, ramming her SUV into the concrete barrier on Interstate 80 and nearly running other motorists off the road. She later slammed into the back of a car stopped at a red light, injuring a woman and her 3-year-old daughter.
Other drivers had been trailing her car in an effort to make her stop. After the accident, motorists berated her for dangerous driving. Migden reportedly kept saying
"You can't talk to me like that, I'm a state senator."
Then in march of this year "...state regulators handed Senator Carol Migden a $350,000 fine for 89 -- 89! -- campaign spending and disclosure violations. The abuses reach all the way back to 2003, and include illegal personal use of campaign funds." -Sacramento Bee
