New York Times Writers Alan Rappeport, Steve Eder, and Marco Rubio’s Wife Cited for At Least 13 Traffic Violations
Alan Rappeport and Steve Eder are the people responsible for the single most ridiculous Big Media article I have seen since I woke up today. Painfully stupid even for Big Media:
Marco Rubio and His Wife Cited 17 Times for Traffic Infractions
Senator Marco Rubio has been in a hurry to get to the top, rising from state legislator to United States senator in the span of a decade and now running for president at age 44.
But politics is not the only area where Mr. Rubio, a Republican from Florida, has an affinity for the fast track. He and his wife, Jeanette, have also shown a tendency to be in a rush on the road.
According to a search of the Miami-Dade and Duval County court dockets, the Rubios have been cited for numerous infractions over the years for incidents that included speeding, driving through red lights and careless driving. A review of records dating back to 1997 shows that the couple had a combined 17 citations: Mr. Rubio with four and his wife with 13.
Four citations since 1997 for a 44-year-old is not a lot; that’s about how many I have at roughly the same age. (Hey! I said “roughly”!) But “Marco Rubio Received Four Traffic Tickets” is a headline that would grab nobody’s attention — so they substituted a misleading one that lumped Rubio in with his wife.
Of course, Alan Rappeport, Steve Eder, and Marco Rubio’s wife have together collected at least 13 traffic citations, if not many more. So it’s pretty hypocritical of Rappeport and Eder to be writing this story, don’t you agree?
Here is the scofflaw Rubio couple with their son:

Well, his campaign’s over.
FROM THE ASSIGNMENT DESK: I wonder how many times Hillary Clinton and her chauffeur have received traffic tickets. Alan Rappeport? Steve Eder? Hop to it!
