Since she won't comment, what's keeping her constituents like us from showing up and asking for tips from the expert on how to avoid be a victim of theft?

It's scary that she is an assembly woman and her husband is a judge and she thinks its ok to be on a cell phone and walk out of a store with merchandise. And it is also frightening that one of our lawmakers didn't realize that he couldn't board a plane with a gun in his briefcase. Dear Lord help us when we have representatives like this!

you're right lisa. some one , or some people would even be better, showing up to her public appearance and calling her to the mat is what she deserves. probation isn't enough. she's an elected official. they should be held to the highest standard. meaning punishment should be of the highest also. talking on her phone as she left was a calculated move.
