R. Shawn Nelson, is running as fast as he can for the office of Orange County Supervisor in the Fourth District. He is currently a member of the Fullerton City Council. The Honorable Mr. Nelson is a criminal defense attorney. Even though he should be proud that he has made a fortune ensuring the rights of all individuals to legal counsel, he avoids mentioning that fact on his campaign website. Why would he think that his clients might be a political liability?
Recently, I learned about something else he fails to mention is that he has a bit of a lead foot. Three times in the past seven years, he has been pulled over for driving above the speed limit.Â Nelson was cited on September 3, 2003, March 19, 2008, and March 23, 2009 for driving in excess of 65 miles per hour on the freeway by the California Highway Patrol. Makes me wonder if we should have the three strikes law include speeding.
It seems that Mr. Nelson can’t read those speed limit signs on the freeway.
Go Speed, Go!
