GOP Lawmaker Tells Cop Not To Give Him Ticket ‘Due To His Immunity As A Government Official’ Then Brags About Breaking The Law
Rep. Paul Mosley (R-AZ.) was caught on a body camera of a La Paz County Sheriff’s deputy this week bragging about driving over the speed limit all the time after he was pulled over for going 97 miles per hour in a 55-mile-per-hour zone.
When Mosley got pulled over he didn’t seem surprised. In fact, he told the deputy that he always drives fast because he has government immunity and won’t get a ticket for it.
“Please watch your speed, sir, regardless of whether you’re trying to get home,” the officer told Mosley after pulling him over.
“Well, I was doing 120 earlier,” Mosley replied with a smirk on his face.
“Really?” the officer asked.
“Yeah!” he replies. “This [car] goes to 140. That’s what I like about it!”
The officer then asked Mosley if he really meant it when he said he was driving that fast.
“Yeah, I go 130, 140,” the Republican responded.
Mosley then clarified that he “didn’t even notice I was going this fast because, this car, you know, nice wheels.”
According to the deputy report obtained by the Arizona Republic, “Mosley… told me that I should just let him go and that I shouldn’t waste anymore of my time dealing with him due to his immunity as a government official.”
