Klobuchar getting into trouble on Obama's campaign tour
Sen. Amy Klobuchar was on board Sen. Barack Obama's campaign RV in Colorado when it was pulled over by a county sheriff's deputy outside of Canon City, according to the Denver Post.
According to the report:
Barack Obama's campaign is running a bus tour through Colorado this week to take its message to rural voters. Outside of Canon City, they attracted some unwanted attention.
With Colorado Sen. Ken Salazar driving, and former Gov. Roy Romer and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar on board, the recreational vehicle was pulled over by a county sheriff's deputy on Highway 50.
The deputy said the month and year tags on the rented RV were in the wrong place.
Salazar and Romer came to the driver's window and the deputy recognized them.
"Gov. Romer! I haven't seen you since I was a little kid," state Obama campaign manager Ray Rivera said the deputy yelled through the window.
The RV did not receive a ticket.
We bet that is one hell of a party bus. It's unfortunate the officials were so excited to see politicians that they neglected to check the back for illegal goodies.
