Jay Garrity Update
Our favorite cop wannabe is back in the news
In an apparent violation of the law, a controversial aide to ex-Gov. Mitt Romney created phony law enforcement badges that he and other staffers used on the campaign trail to strong-arm reporters, avoid paying tolls and trick security guards into giving them immediate access to campaign venues, sources told the Herald.
The bogus badges were part of the bizarre security tactics allegedly employed by Jay Garrity, the director of operations for Romney who is under investigation for impersonating a law enforcement officer in two states. Garrity is on a leave of absence from the campaign while the probe is ongoing.
Two other Romney aides are implicated in the phony badge story.
You may recall that Garrity first came to our attention
when he pulled over a New York Times reporter who was covering the campaign.
