Va. Rep. to DC: Leave slugs alone

Don't mess with the slugs (or those who drive them). That's what U.S. Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-Va.) said in a letter to D.C. Police--who said they agreed--after reports of ticketing slugging commuters made headlines last month. Connolly, a first-term congressman from Northern Virginia facing re-election this fall, contacted D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier following a WJLA/ABC 7 report last month that suggested police were targeting slugging commuters, handing out $100 tickets.
