Corzine accident.

You know those various videos you've seen from Iraq, where the mercenaries hired by the U.S. government are ramming other vehicles off the road, randomly machine-gunning out windshields and tires, and generally doing their absolute worst at being ambassadors of goodwill?

Yeah, well, that accident involving New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine apparently involved a state trooper doing pretty much that, driving over 90MPH in a 65 zone, running a new driver off the road, and ramming another vehicle, resulting in an accident that put Corazine, who wasn't wearing a seatbelt, in the hospital.

Politicians shouldn't assume privilege like that. Security is one thing, but this sure seems like it's beyond the pale, and I hope that the driver is charged with at least attempted manslaughter, and if the law doesn't deal harshly with Corzine for being in direct charge when this happened, then the voters do.

It's Corzine. The extra letter makes me think of a drug.

Edited. Thank you. Although I have to admit, any place where this guy's political career is still intact must be on drugs.
