Hillary Clinton ticketed in $5 parking lot

In 2016, Hillary Clinton may become the most powerful person on Earth, but on Saturday her 10-person security detail couldn’t stop a cop writing a parking ticket.

This injustice would never have happened in America, of course, where the former first lady, U.S. secretary of state and presidential candidate could probably leave her car in the Lincoln Memorial and not run afoul of the law.

No, the ticket was issued by a London “traffic warden,” according to The Daily Mail, which has pictures of incredulous Secret Service agents waving their arms in protest.

Clinton, 65, who was in Atlanta Tuesday, gets around pretty good for someone retired. She was in central London Saturday to accept an award on diplomacy. At about the same time the officer was writing the ticket, Clinton was saying the world needed “sensible adult conversation” about the boundaries of state surveillance.

The photographer who snapped the pictures said Clinton arrived at the Chatham House in a flotilla of five Mercedes. The driver of the car she was in did not pay the $5-an-hour parking fee. When the officer began writing the ticket, five Secret Service agents allegedly jumped out of a nearby van and began flashing badges.

The parking ticket will be roughly $130, but only half that if paid within 14 days. The good news is that Park Atlanta is not involved so she won’t have to pay the fine twice to stop annoying phone calls.

Here some more news out there on the Interwebs:

Yes because the liberal elite is above the law in this country. How dare they be subject to the rules of you commoners. Next thing you know, she will be expected to participate in Obamacare or something – oh the humanity!

Why didn’t the security guy just pay the parking fee? Could have gotten the money back from Hillary.

Woah, $130 for a parking ticket in London?
Guess I’m less annoyed at myself for running over the meter time and getting that $25 ticket in Midtown last year.

Don’t the Brits know that Democrats are above the law and can do whatever they want? Just like their royal family.

The driver should pay. If Mrs. Clinton was driving then she should pay. I think the secret service thinks they do not have to follow the same rules as the rest of us.

You sound like a jackass in the second paragraph George. Check your ego at the door. She wasn’t driving, nor parking, so it’s not her responsibility to pay.

I do applaud you though for the NFL ACS link. The fact that the NFL is a non-profit and makes billions annually irks me since they donate so little to ACS.

ah yes, it would be interesting to see who destroyed the mattress. must be those liberals. They could not tax the sex. And just how un affordable is the ACA? VERY unaffordable unless you go into the Obama exchange where you exchange your life for subsidized substandard health care from Dr. 17 letters. Or From Dr. Achmed the dead terrorist.

We have a government that is preventing veterans from visiting war memorials. A government that refuses to work, but continues to collect taxes. A government that covers up spying on our news outlets, what really happened in Benghazi, the IRS scandal, North Korea threatening to attack us. Now we have a healthcare mandate that is so inefficient that at current rates, it will take over 50 years for everybody to comply with the current law.

All this and Hillary Clinton getting a 5 Euro ticket is news??? This is why the rest of the world hates us. And I don’t blame them one bit. I am now embarrassed by my country.
