Maryland Lawmaker, DC Lawbreaker?
[Update: the Driver/Delegate is District 15's Craig L. Rice of neighboring Montgomery County. According to his biography, Delegate Rice was born in Washington, DC. Shame on Delegate Rice for not obeying the laws of his hometown. To understand how 15 = 46A, please see the comments for a link to The Baltimore Sun]
Washington, DC – Saturday, a Honda Element with Maryland license plate “House of Delegates 46 A” parked at a sign, “No Standing or Parking Anytime” on congested Wisconsin Avenue in Friendship Heights, DC. The driver even had his “Confession Flashers” on acknowledging he should not be there. Who is the shaded man in the driver's seat waiting for?
[Updated: The numbering of the license plate appeared to reference one of District 46 Delegates: Brian K. McHale, Peter A. Hammen or Carolyn J. Krysiak. 46A is actually the plate for District 15 Craig L. Rice. The District 46 Delegates were not involved in this incident.]
Who is the mysterious Delegate A and why the need to illegally park in DC on a Saturday?
Maryland Delegates have a history of making/breaking laws within their own state lines. District 14 Delegate Herman Taylor once pushed for “DUI” plates for convicted drunk drivers. Then last month Delegate Taylor was found guilty of driving while impaired. Police officers reported they even caught him pretending to blow into the Breathalyzer.
