Taxpayers Foot Bill For PA Politician’s Car Wrecks

/ WDAC

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Records show that a Pennsylvania lawmaker has had three car accidents in three years – with repairs and insurance claims covered by state taxpayers. Democrat Rep. Margo Davidson has a total bill for repairs and claims exceeding $30,000 from crashes involving two state-owned vehicles. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the costs mounted under a state program allowing General Assembly members to lease state-owned vehicles for up to $628 a month. The Delaware County-area representative said in a statement that “accidents unfortunately happen from time to time when people drive.” Republican Rep. Brad Roae of Crawford County says the state leasing program has poor oversight and introduced House Bill 482 last year to end the practice of providing state cars to members of the General Assembly.
