All politics is automotive?

On Tuesday Sen. James Condos, D-Chittenden, pointed out that the license tags on Gov. James Douglas’ black state sedan expired at the end of April.

“It’s not my car,”

Douglas

joked.

But Thursday a mysterious photograph started showing up in the Statehouse. Pictured was a car with Senate license plate number 24 – belonging to Sen. Bill Carris of

Rutland

– complete with April tags.

We were assured that Carris’ new tags are on the front seat of his car.

“This is tit for tat. It has Karl Rove written all over it,” Condos joked.
