U.S Commerce Secretary

Off Hook in Hit-and-Run

Seizure Case

U.S Commerce Secretary John Bryson won't face charges after allegedly crashing into two cars in L.A. last month ... and fleeing the scene -- because the D.A. has rejected his hit-and-run case.

As we previously reported, Bryson was found unconscious in his Lexus after allegedly smashing his Lexus into two cars -- miles apart from each other.

According to the D.A.'s charge evaluation sheet, doctors believe Bryson suffered his seizure following the first accident -- and the disorienting experience caused accident #2.

The D.A. says Bryson's blood tested negative for alcohol and controlled substances, but positive for a low level of Ambien -- too low for a DUI charge.

Bryson had been cited for hit-and-run after he was taken to a nearby hospital following the accidents -- but today, the D.A. rejected the case due to insufficient evidence ... both for hit-and-run and DUI.

Translation: Bryson's in the clear.

If he is having seizures they need to take his license away. But saying this is just a dem or an Obama administration thing is very false. Politicians on both sides of the aisle get away with A LOT. It's not a democrat or republican thing...it is a politician thing.

Of course he's in the clear. Did anyone think he wouldn't be? If that was me I'd be in prison for three years. Oh sorry, he had a "seizure." *wink*wink*

DemoCrips and ReBloodlicans alike are corrupt, had it been any presidential cabinet member, nothing would happen. The corruption flows through the system, not a party.

Just goes to show that there is one law for politicians/celebrities and one law for the rest of us. If it had been one of us we'd be in jail with multiple charges against us. It must be fun to not have to worry to much about such useless things as traffic laws.
