Asshat of the Week
"I am not seeing the reduction in accidents that justify the headache and the controversy."
--Mayor Martin Chavez in a Sunday, Nov. 11, Albuquerque Journal article about the task force he appointed to study the red-light cameras.
All year, Chavez staunchly supported the cameras and was quoted saying such things as:
"These cameras are not a cash cow for the city. I've tried everything to cut down on speeding and red-light violations, and this program is the first thing that has worked." Feb. 15, 2007.
Something's changed. Chavez announced last month that he will run for Domenici's Senate seat. (MD)
