Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, the bombastic TV judge, says she had been racing to see her sick mother when stopped for speeding.
“I had been driving for hours … and didn’t realize how fast I was driving,” she said. “I believe in the rule of law and I will pay the consequences.”
New York State Police say the 66-year-old former district attorney was clocked at 119 mph about 1:15 p.m. Sunday in the Town of Nichols in Tioga County. The posted limit: 65 mph.
Reportedly driving a Cadillac, Pirro is “known as much for her conservative views as for the rapid-fire way in which she expresses them,” said The New York Times. “She said in a 2015 interview with The Hill that her biggest pet peeve was people who ‘drive slow in the passing lane.’”
USA Today noted that her then-husband Albert J. Pirro was sentenced to 29 months in prison for tax evasion.
And the Times said: “Over the course of Mr. Pirro’s trial for tax evasion in 2000, … the couple’s luxury car collection was enumerated for the jury. It included Bentleys, several Mercedes, several more sport utility vehicles and a Ferrari 348 Spider that cost more than $120,000.”
Speedy reactions from the left lane:
JEANINE PIRRO: “Tired of Hillary acting above the law!”
CAUGHT: Driving 119 MPH.
TONY PERKINS: “Gay marriage is immoral.”
CAUGHT: Hiring and covering for at least two molesters.
ROY MOORE: “Gays are immoral.”
CAUGHT: Being a child molester. https://t.co/qB1fbGunzA

Jeanine Pirro broke the law
Michael Flynn broke the law
Paul Manafort broke the law
Hillary Clinton did not…
So who really needs to be “locked up”?

If Jeanine Pirro was doing 200mph LEAVING New York State forever, it wouldn't be fast enough. Throw the book at her!
