State to cities: cameras aren't there to just make money

State Transportation Director Paul Trombino said on Monday that Iowa cities like Cedar Rapids with traffic enforcement cameras on state roads won’t have to take them down if they add to highway safety.

Reported and confirmed by Snopes that the firm run by the husband of rabidly anti-gun senator Feinstein will make millions for brokering land deals for the United States Postal Service.

 Would that a commoner get that same sweetheart deal...
