Bill Janklow is Reckless.

Bill Janklow is reckless. And dangerous. And has apparently not learned his lesson.

Thanks to the Argus Leader article published this week, this is even more clear.

After killing Minnesota motorcylist Randy Scott in 2003 after running a stop sign, the former governor resigned his seat in Congress and lost his license to practice law. He was put on probation and not allowed to drive again until 2007. Since the probation ended, he has had 4 speeding tickets and hit a car in the last 4 years.

His violations:

- March 23, 2008: Driving 55 mph in a 50 mph zone (actual speed was 68).

- Sept. 23, 2008: Damage to an unattended vehicle.

- Oct. 8, 2008: Driving 45 mph in a 35 mph zone (actual speed was 47).

- Feb. 27, 2010: Driving 80 mph in a 65 mph zone (actual speed was 84).

This does not include tickets in other states, which he has since received as well.

This is unacceptable, unethical, and above all - dangerous. If this were a regular Citizen, do you think the same considerations would have been made? Would YOU still have your license?
