Yet another Democrat in the state legislature has been up to mischief with a motor vehicle. This time it's Representative Jason Bartlett of the 2nd House District.
He was apparently arrested Tuesday morning, and has been charged with driving while using a cellphone without a hands-free device, driving with a suspended license and without a registration.
This particular tale does not involve a drunken woman freezing to death like last winter's tragic tale involving Democrat Rep. James O'Rourke. But it does go to show once again the habit Democrats are in of making laws for other people that they believe themselves to be above.
Naturally, Bartlett voted for a budget last session that increased DMV fees. Maybe who would have been more careful about the vote if he actually paid the fees.
I am also wondering why Bartlett's license was suspended, and why the cause of this suspension doesn't seem to have made news anywhere prior to this arrest.
I think the people of his district deserve better than this... are there any other laws that the legislture has made that Bartlett feels are optional because of hoiw incredibly special and important he is? Politicians like this are colostomy bags hanging from the political process.
