Leading by example?

In a typical case of political “do as I say, not as I do,” California State Senator Carole Midgen, a Democrat from San Francisco, caused a three-vehicle smashup last Friday morning when she slammed her 2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid SUV into the rear end of a slowing car. Senator Midgen, who voted last year for a law to impose a minimum $20 fine on drivers caught using a cell phone without a hands-free device, was, as you’d expect, busy chatting on her cell phone at the time of the crash.
