It seems Samuel J. Wurzelbacher, or as John McCain dubbed him, “Joe the Plumber,” lives a charmed life. Wurzelbacher was caught going 50mph in a 35mph zone in Toledo last week, but America’s favorite toilet doctor got off with just a warning. The officer decided a ticket would have “negative repercussions to the department and city as a whole,” according to the official report.
Nor is it the first strange incident between Joe and the department. Last Tuesday, a day before Wurzelbacher was pulled over, the police chief announced that a department clerk was being fined for allegedly looking up Mr. The Plumber’s address in a state database.
