    anthony-i-wanna-waiver-weiner made the news yesterday for a different reason

    it appears he's EXEMPT from paying the PARKING TICKETS the rest of us might be subject to

    According to a Roll Call survey of vehicles parked on Capitol Hill and at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, as of mid-March, lawmakers were carrying at least $15,000 in outstanding tickets — ranging from expired meters to speeding camera violations — and potentially thousands of dollars more.

    The District’s database showed Weiner received nearly $2,180 in tickets from 2007 to early March, including some instances in which he appears to have incurred multiple violations at the same time, such as failing to display current tags while parked in a taxi stand zone.

    but never fear

    AFTER mr i-wanna-waiver's remissions went PUBLIC he...

    well, let's let his spokesman explain:

    “All of the Congressman’s parking tickets have been paid. He is pleased to have helped decrease the D.C. budget deficit,” Weiner spokesman Dave Arnold said.
    LOL!

    thank goodness i-wanna-waiver doesn't live in paris

    i-wanna-waiver-weiner woulda had to WALK

    So let's hear some of your thoughts..... if ObamaKare is so wonderful, why are so many of Obama's pals getting waivers for it, while the poor guy with a family of four making $45,000/year gets soaked for over $2,500 in health insurance premiums whether he wants it or needs it.

    It's like mass public transportation. They want it for YOU, as long as they don't get caught dead on it.
