In May, Deeds was driving when he rear-ended another car in Louisa County, and ended up getting ticketed for following too closely. The two female passengers in the other car were treated and released from a local hospital with minor injuries.
Then, on July 4, Deeds was ticketed for speeding in Albemarle County, doing 76 in a 65 zone. (We haven't seen this reported anywhere, but we have a good source on it.)
We'd hope by now that Deeds, as the official nominee of the Democratic party, and the recipient of significant campaign funds, would have himself a driver. It's not that we don't appreciate public officials driving themselves around; but surely he has some important things to do--like calling bloggers and donors--while canvassing the state.
