Paging the traffic police: Looks like Rep. Michael McCaul is breaking a traffic law.
An HOH tipster sent us a cell phone picture Tuesday of a Toyota Highlander parked in the Texas Republican’s driveway outside his Capitol Hill home. The sport utility vehicle appears to be new, as it is outfitted with temporary paper license plates.
But there’s a problem. Those temporary plates expired Nov. 1, 2010, and another HOH spy has spotted the vehicle being driven on city streets, which is illegal because of the expired tags.
McCaul’s office says the Congressman is working to get the plates updated as soon as possible.
“The McCauls have been working with the Toyota dealer trying to register the leased vehicle in their home state of Texas,” spokesman Mike Rosen tells us.
“Juggling their five children and running into the holidays, the process of getting the Texas plates to Washington has regrettably taken longer than expected.”
Rep. Christopher H. Smith, R-N.J., left, David Goldman, center, and Arvind Chawdra right, attend a news conference in the Rayburn House Office Building on international child abduction. Goldman and Chawdra are fathers whose children were abducted by their mothers and taken abroad.
Each year since 1990, CQ Roll Call has reviewed the financial disclosures of all 541 senators, representatives and delegates to determine the 50 richest members of Congress. This year's report, derived from forms covering the calendar year 2012, shows it took a net worth of $6.67 million to crack the exclusive club.
