Speeding past police cars cost MP

Here’s a recent article about our MP (for Saskatoon-Wanuskewin): “Speeding past police cars cost MP“.  I am embarrassed that this person is my representative in parliment.  I don’t understand why he couldn’t just admit that he was in the wrong, suck it up and pay the fine!  Trying to lay blame on anything but himself reminds me of my 10 year old son who likes to blame his brother (or anyone else) for his mess.
