Fox News host Jeanine Pirro hit with speeding charges after cops clock her driving 119 mph upstate NY

Readers have suggested that Justice Jeanine’s  no-nonsense approach strict adherence to the U.S. Constitution would have made her an ideal candidate for the U.S. Supreme Court.

She is a big fan of Donald Trump and the feeling is apparently mutual.

 

However legal issues and breaking the law along with her husband make her selection improbable.

1986 governor’s race

In May 1986, Republican gubernatorial candidate Andrew O’Rourke selected Pirro to be his running mate.

However, two days later, Pirro withdrew without giving a reason and was quickly replaced by Michael Kavanagh.

2006 U.S. Senate campaign

On August 10, 2005, Pirro announced that she would seek the Republican nomination to challenge first-term incumbent senator Hillary Clinton, a Democrat, in the 2006 election for U.S. Senator from New York.

Other Republicans who announced campaigns for the nomination were John Spencer, a former mayor of Yonkers, William Brenner, an attorney in Sullivan County, and attorney Edward Cox, the son-in-law of former president Richard Nixon.

In a widely publicized moment when she was declaring her candidacy, Pirro misplaced page 10 of her speech and went silent for 32 seconds, something that is widely considered to have damaged her campaign before it even started.

During an appearance at the Crime Victims Resource Center, Pirro described herself this way: “I am red on fiscal policy.

I am conservative and I support the Bush tax cut.”

 

Republican governor George Pataki‘s endorsement of Pirro caused Cox to withdraw from the race, leaving Pirro as the likely nominee.

Donors to Pirro’s political campaign included designer Tommy Hilfiger (also a native of Elmira) and Donald Trump, as well as contractors and real estate executives who had done business with her husband.

On December 21, 2005, after continuing pressure from party chiefs, a lagging fundraising effort, and polls showing she would be easily defeated by Clinton (a Quinnipiac University poll found Pirro would lose to Clinton 62 percent to 30 percent), Pirro dropped out of the Senate race.

Could that poll have been rigged and the Justice had no desire to end up in a Clinton body bag?

In a statement, she said “I have decided that my law enforcement background better qualifies me for a race for New York State attorney general than a race for the United States Senate.

“Spencer was eventually chosen as the Republican Party’s nominee for the U.S. Senate.

2006 State attorney general campaign

Main article: New York attorney general election, 2006

On May 31, 2006, Pirro, unopposed for the nomination, became the Republican party’s official candidate for attorney general by acclamation at the state GOP convention.

She also received the nominations of the New York Conservative and Independence Parties.

Pirro lost the general election to the Democratic nominee, former Clinton Housing and Urban Development Secretary and future Governor Andrew Cuomo 58%–39%.

    It always seemed like Jeanine Pirro couldn’t get out of Elmira fast enough.

    But on Sunday she was in a rush to get there.

     

     

    The Fox News celebrity and former Westchester County district attorney was ticketed by a state trooper Sunday for driving 119 mph in the Southern Tier town of Nichols.

    Pirro was pulled over at 1:15 p.m. on Route 17, said a spokeswoman for the state police. he speed limit there is 65 mph.

    Nichols is about 25 miles from Elmira, where Pirro grew up.

    Pirro got on the line when a reporter called a relative’s home in Elmira on Monday afternoon. She hung up when asked about the ticket.

     

    But Fox News Channel issued a statement from her.

    “I had been driving for hours to visit my ailing 89-year-old mom and didn’t realize how fast I was driving,” she said in the statement. “I believe in the rule of law and I will pay the consequences.”

    Pirro has until Jan. 8 to answer the ticket in person or by mail. According to the state Department of Motor Vehicles driver-point system, a conviction for driving 40 or more miles over the speed limit results in 11 points on a driver’s license.

    Eleven points in an 18-month period is grounds for a license suspension.

    After a stint as a Westchester County judge, the former prosecutor became district attorney in 1994.

    She served three terms, then opted not to run for a fourth in 2005 so she could challenge Hillary Clinton in the race for U.S. Senate the following year.

    That contest got off to a horrible start when Pirro lost a page of her speech and stood silent in front of the microphones for more than 30 seconds. She gave up the race months later, opting instead to run for New York attorney general.

    She lost the election to now-Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

    For the past several years Pirro has had her own show on Fox News, “Justice with Judge Jeanine.”

    Pirro put her Harrison home up for sale for just under $5 million in 2015. It is still on the market, listed for $3.7 million.

    THE END
