Believe it or not, weâre still discussing traffic tickets. The New York Times must get credit for breaking the important story of everyÂ traffic ticket accumulated by Sen. Marco Rubio and his wife since 1997, but since then, itâs been up to each media outlet to decide how to frame this critical information for the voting public.
MSNBC didnât have much to add,Â but political correspondent Kasie Hunt did manage to catch up with Rubio (no easy feat!) in Iowa where she heard from the candidate himself what itâs like to live on the wrong side of the law. âI can tell you, being from Miami, where you drive everywhere, having four tickets in 17 years is not considered bad,â he explained. Expressing further disdain for law and order on Americaâs roads, Rubio added that automated red light cameras are âa big scam. But thatâs another topic for another day.â
Going for the anti-red light camera vote? Risky, but bold as well.
That was the extent of MSNBCâs published interview, but MSNBCâsÂ website also features a handy online poll to measure the nationâs temperature on this latest political scandal.
