Star Ledger columnist Paul Mulshine points out that the New Jersey state constitution protects legislators as they make their way to and from official business.

Article 4, Section 4: “Members of the Senate and General Assembly shall, in all cases except treason and high misdemeanor, be privileged from arrest during their attendance at the sitting of their respective houses, and in going to and returning from the same.”

 

Albano was stopped while driving to the Statehouse for Gov. Chris Christie’s budget address. Albano admits asking Trooper Randy Pangborn to not issue the ticket, but denies trying to use his elected position to make that happen. He later apologized for speeding.
