[h=2]Lawmaker Asked Police to Ignore Husband's Call[/h]After locking her husband out of their home, Illinois state Sen. Suzi Schmidt (R) "called 911, identified herself as an elected official, asked police to 'ignore' her husband if he called and said he feared her because she had 'connections,' according to newly released police reports and recordings of the call," the Chicago Tribune reports.
"Amid a host of allegations -- that the Republican senator rammed her car into her husband's during a subsequent row in August and then, just this week, bit him and struck him with a cellphone -- the recordings raise the question of whether Schmidt was seeking to use her political clout to influence Lake County authorities."

Arrogant elected officials using their position to put themselves above the law need to resign or be kicked out immediately! Prosecuted to, if any laws were broken. Damn, she was so arrogant about abusing her elected position she said these things on a recorded call ....
