Will Governor Corzine Face Charges

We know that Governor Corzine's state-owned vehicle was traveling with emergency lights flashing at the time of the accident last week. That apparent abuse might easily have led to the death of another driver. We now know that the vehicle was traveling at 91 miles per hour at the time of the incident - 26 miles per hour above the speed limit.

Philo points out in the comment section of a prior post that the Governor was approximately 86 miles from his destination, about 1 hour prior to the meeting he was hoping to attend (the Don Imus groveling session).

So we have to ask: was it the Governor's intent to drive for an hour at 90 mph - with emergency lights flashing the whole way - in order to make this photo op?

The incident makes you wonder whether anyone remembers the case of Bill Janklow. There's one important difference between these two cases: in that of Janklow, someone died. But it appears that the actions of Corzine (and/or his driver) were comparably reckless.

Will Corzine or his driver face charges?
