Sounds like the good governor has an Obama attitude. Even so, just another crooked politician.
Dummy, he's a Republican.
If the govenor needed to be somewhere that fast then he should have been in a helicopter.He and his driver also put everyone on that highway at risk.Money and power buys everything.If the govenor had any balls at all he would see the man returned to duty. Shame,Shame on you mister govenor!!
What gives the Governor the right to be speeding (his driver) 84 MPH? Was there an emergency, or other reasonable explanation for the speeding? Perhaps the Governor was just in a hurry and felt that he could have his driver break the law by speeding, and get away with it. Hedlund was suspended for trying to do his job and the Governor sits by laughing about it! I assume that the Governor's vehicle had an exempt license plate and that the Governor felt that he was exempt from laws ordinary people must follow. Fred Gramcko
jfrank5317 I gave you a thumbsup. No credit given though it says it did.
I find it amusing that I can't thumbs up the comments that point out the BLATANT corruption going on here. Anyone else having that problem? If that Governor had been molesting a child, would the cops have been told to stand down? Probably. Than they would have filed charges on the kid for false testimony afterword. Hello, FRANKLIN KIDS. I'd also like to point out.... everyone who clicks a thumbs up on these political articles but it doesn't get credited should post about it. Send up a big RED FLAG NO THUMBS UP. Start outing the censorship the corpogovt is using against us the citizens.
hey occ1020, would it kill ya,to throw in a few comma,s and a period ,once in a while !
EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON HEAR IT WAS THE GOVERNOR AND HIS FRIENDS IN THE POLICE DEPT WANTED TO KEEP THAT POLICE OFFICER ON THE DOWN LOW SO THE GOVERNOR WOULD NOT GET IN TO TROUBLE WITH THE LAW THAT THE GOVERNOR SAYS HE GOS BY BUT THE GOVERNOR WANTS EVERYONE TO FOLLOW THE LAW BUT HE DOSE NOT HAVE TO THATS WHY THEY USED THAT POLICE OFFICER AS AN ESCAPE GOAT. SO IT GOS TO SHOW YOU HOW THE GOVERNOR USED HIS POWER TO SIDE STEP THE LAW AND TO PUT THE BLAME ON SOMEONE ELSE . IT MAKES ME SICK THAT AMERICA HAS TURNED IN TO A PIG STYE FROM THE GOVERMENT.
Apparently the Iowa governor is a Republican. You have to give the cop credit, he knew that he was going to be retaliated against, and it came right on schedule. I don't think that anyone believes that the governor didn't know anything was going on. It would have been the same thing if it was a congressman or senator, they all believe that laws don't apply to them, and mostly, as you can see by their not being included in the national health plan, voting themselves raises, getting full salary for just one term of "work", and all the bribes they take, that they are right. Don't fire the cop for doing his job, fire the governor for NOT doing his !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They always say the whistleblower was suspended for "other reasons."
I guess HRH the "GOV" is above the law. stories like this stink.
