Hypocrisy of Politicians Continues … State Sen. Carole Migden, D-San Francisco, Rear Ends Driver While Talking on Cell Phone


The do as we say, not as we do hypocrisy if politicians in this country continues. What a shame that politicians do do uphold the same standards that they vote for and inflict upon us, “We the People”. On Friday, California State Sen. Carole Migden, D-San Francisco, while driving her new state-issued 2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid SUV rear-ended Ellen Butawan, 31, of Vallejo. The cause of the accident was that Migden was talking on her cell phone. The hypocrisy … Midgen voted for cell phone ban while driving.    

Migden last year voted for a new law that takes effect in July 2008 that will impose a minimum fine of $20 for anyone caught using a cell phone while driving without a headset, ear bud or other technology that frees both hands. (Times-Herald)

      Typical Democrat getting arrested. Republicans always follow the law.

      Cell phone in one hand, cigarette in the other. That can make me so mad, and I know they have the radio turned up full blast. All of this and speeding or either driving too slow because they’re all caught up in their conversation. The rear-ends tick me off.

      I shudder when I see any politician from San Francisco — “rear ended.”
