Who's Above the Law?

Monday, April 03, 2006

(From Wikipedia) On June 14, 1989, Zsa Zsa Gabor (pictured on the left) was accused of slapping the face of a Beverly Hills police officer when he stopped her for a traffic violation. She was found guilty of the assault in a well-publicized trial and sentenced to three days in jail (and required to pay $13,000 in court costs).
 
Quoting from an AP article: Rep. Cynthia McKinney, 51, scuffled with a police officer on March 29 when she entered a House office building without her identifying lapel pin and did not stop when asked.

Several police sources said the officer, who was not identified, asked her three times to stop. When she kept going, he placed a hand somewhere on her and she hit him, according to the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Well, dear reader... what do you think? Will she get away with assaulting an officer or suffer the same wrath as Zsa Zsa Gabor? Will justice be served? Or will she get preferential treatment?

If a sitting congresswoman was about to be exposed as a thief that stole money from the public what would she do?
