NJ Attorney General Anne Milgram was issued a ticket for driving 69 mph in a 50 mph zone on Route 1 in New Brunswick. Milgram, in a 1994 Honda, didn't identify herself as AG and the officer only realized who she was when he returned to the department. Milgram won't fight the $176 fine (also 4 points on her license), "I made a mistake and know what I did was wrong. I take responsibility for driving too fast." (When her boss--NJ Governor Jon Corzine--was critically injured in his speeding state trooper-driven SUV, Corzine paid a fine for not wearing a seat belt.) The Star-Ledger noted that Senate President Richard Codey said, "The fact that the attorney general drives a '94 Honda proves without question she is a woman of great integrity and frugality."
