This Democratic Lawmaker’s Bizarre Meltdown Over A Speeding Ticket Will Make Your Day (Video)
Hilarious! I think she could get some tips by reading a book called “What Happened?” I have not read it but I think it is all about whining when you don’t get your way. This officer also showed great restraint.
BTW as a lawmaker, she should already know that ‘someone else was also breaking the law’ doesn’t work as an excuse for her breaking the law.
A police camera captured a Democratic county lawmaker bizarrely screaming, begging, invoking for special privileges, saying she’s broke, claiming to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and panting like she’s about to keel over while she received a routine speeding ticket for driving 13 miles per hour over the posted speed limit.
The legislator in the disturbing dash-cam video is Jennifer Schwartz Berky, a member of the Ulster County Legislature in Ulster County, New York.
The incident occurred back in May. The video is coming out now — just in time for local elections — in response to a Freedom of Information Law request (and in spite of appeals by Berky’s lawyer to suppress it).
A local news site, Hudson Valley One, has published a condensed version of Berky’s antics. Read more at TDC.
County legislator Jennifer Schwartz Berky apologized for her behavior during the traffic.
The only reason she apologizes is because the video was released to the public and 99% of the people who watched it are totally disgusted by the way she acted. It’s so typical of politicians to rush to apologize only when they’ve been caught red-handed.
