A police source tells 9News Now that Toles was traveling more 105 mph on the Capital Beltway when she was pulled over by police on February 22.
The traffic stop happened around Noon that day, near Branch Avenue, police said.
Toles was cited for an unsafe lane-change, a $90 fine and was given a warning for excessive speed, police said in a news release Tuesday.
Sources told 9News Now Toles was going almost 50 miles per hour faster than the posted speed limit when she was spotted by police.
"The issuance of a warning citation for the speed is consistent with the typical discretion applied by police officers to speeding motorists. The traffic violations were captured on the police officer's in-car camera, and the incident will be subject to command review. At the moment, the video is evidence in a pending District Court traffic case, and will not be released," police said in a news release.
The Councilwoman later issued a statement saying she was "late for an appointment."
Whoever said "crime doesn't pay" clearly never worked for the government.
It’s made very difficult to do, and the attempt can get you arrested. You will be intimidated and asked for your papers merely for asking for a form. This is where the state is closest to the people—the local police—and yet some people still think government is more responsive to the people than business.
Anytime Ron Paul sits across from Ben Bernanke you know sparks will fly. Sure enough, they did: starting 3 mins 50 seconds into the clip below, Ron Paul, guns blazing, asks the Chairman if he does his own shopping, if he is aware of what true inflation is, and if he knows that Americans don't trust the government because they are being lied to about inflation...

20 Economic Statistics To Use To Wake Sheeple Up From Their Entertainment-Induced Comas
posted 02/29/2012, 3:34 PM (The Economic Collapse) [Category: Economy] The Dow has closed above 13,000 for the first time since 2008, and the mainstream media is declaring that a strong economic recovery is underway. Barack Obama is telling anyone who will listen that his economic policies are a huge success, and U.S. consumers are piling up astounding amounts of new debt. Unfortunately, this euphoria about the economy will be short-lived. None of the long-term problems that are destroying the U.S. economy have been solved. In fact, there are dozens of statisti...

(Reuters) - Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano defended Washington's drug war strategy on Monday despite calls by some Latin American leaders to consider decriminalizing narcotics.
"I would not agree with the premise that the drug war is a failure," Napolitano said. "It is a continuing effort to keep our peoples f
Sen. Rand Paul Blocks Draconian Drug War Legislation in U.S.
posted 02/29/2012, 3:33 PM (Drug Policy Alliance) [Category: Tyranny/Police State] WASHINGYON, DC—Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is blocking legislation from proceeding in the Senate that would escalate the failed war on drugs, distract law enforcement from dealing with violent crimes, and subject more nonviolent Americans to long prison sentences at taxpayer expense. The legislation, which would criminalize dozens of synthetic drugs, has been criticized by scientists for impeding scientific research and blasted by criminal justice reform groups for perpetuating over-incarcerat...

First of all, discount all the TV pictures of Iranian missiles being fired and troops marching in review. They are designed to boost civilian morale at home. Ironically, Western media has used them to trumpet Iran’s alleged military threat. One major US TV network, NBC, even has a fixed logo on its reports from Iran: "Iran T... (more)

For decades liberals have claimed that the welfare-state/regulated-economy way of life helps the poor. That has been the major rationale for the statist way of life under which we have all been born and raised.
Libertarians, on the other hand, hold the exact opposite. We hold that economic statism is the very worst thing for the poor. Co... (more)

Schiff: No Easy Fix for Gas Prices
posted 02/29/2012, 3:29 PM (Peter Schiff) [Category: Economy] This month, as unleaded gasoline prices increased for 17 consecutive days (to a national average of $3.647 per gallon - up 11% thus far this year) and West Texas Intermediate crude joined Brent crude in breaking through a $100 per barrel level, energy prices emerged as a full blown political issue. While President Obama conveniently claimed that rising prices were the consequence of an improving economy (they're not, and it isn't) Republican fingers began to point sanctimoniously at current dril...

Is Gold Money? Iran Says Yes
posted 02/29/2012, 3:28 PM (Casey Research) [Category: Economy] Economic crises signal that the current system isn't working as expected and needs improvement. When it comes to monetary systems, questioning their fundamentals can lead to doubts about whether the preferred medium of exchange will continue to be preferred for long. The large-scale whirlwind of economic trouble around the globe has pushed some to rethink the role of gold in the economy – and to actually move toward bringing it back.
We’ve talked about this a few times before– FATCA is the heinously insidiously piece of legislation that the Honorable Barrack Hussein Obama passed into law in 2010 as part of the “Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act”.

posted 02/29/2012, 3:25 PM (TorrentFreak) [Category: Big Brother/Orwellian] After being granted bail last week, Kim Dotcom went home to spend some quality time with his family. The Megaupload founder had been in prison for little over a month after his arrest in January. Upset at the decision to grant Dotcom freedom, the US Government, argued yesterday in an appeal hearing that he should be put back in jail. Today they failed in that attempt and Dotcom remains a free man – at least for now.
The Pirate Bay, Now Without Torrents
posted 02/29/2012, 3:25 PM (TorrentFreak) [Category: Science/Technology] Today marks the end of an era for The Pirate Bay.

The Pirate Bay team believes the move is needed to make the site future proof, and is confident that it won’t cause much trouble among users. “Just click the red button instead of the green one and all will be fine,” they say.
