According to the Press of Atlantic City, a South Jersey lawmaker says he got a speeding ticket because of his politics.

New Jersey State Police have launched an internal investigation after Assemblyman Nelson Albano (D-Cape May, Cumberland, Atlantic) got a speeding ticket back in February,  on Route 29 in Hamilton Township, Mercer County.

Albano says he was targeted because of his politics, not his speed.  He says the was payback for health-benefit and pension changes approved by the Legislature.  However, Albano admits he has no proof of that.

Meanwhile, the trooper who pulled Albano over says union leaders pressured him to make the ticket “disappear,” though the union denies that allegation.

Assemblyman Albano admits he was speeding, trying to get to the Statehouse for Gov. Chris Christie’s budget address.  He also says he asked the trooper to cut him a break because of the circumstances.

Should be interesting to see how this one plays out!!!  So what do you think?  Was Assemblyman Albano singled out, should he have been given a pass?
