Ohio State Senator Is Caught Zooming And Driving

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

A state senator in Ohio might have fooled anyone who watched a state board meeting this week into thinking he was attending from home if not for one thing: the seatbelt strapped across his chest.

Also, at one point he turned his head to look over both shoulders in what appeared to be an attempt to safely change lanes inside his home office.

In footage of the meeting, which was streamed live on Monday, the senator, Andrew Brenner, first appeared in a parked car. A few minutes into the call, Mr. Brenner moved his phone, left the meeting for a moment, then reappeared and changed his background to make it look as though he were sitting in a home office, surrounded by brown cabinets, a houseplant and hanging artwork.

But across his chest, a dark-gray seatbelt stood out against his dress shirt.

1. Isn't technology wonderful -

The magic of green screens, none-human driving - I'm not ready to become a crash dummy!

3. Was Brenner then going to use this zoom

meeting as an alibi for some crime he was going to commit at the end of his drive?
Or on his way to a girlfriend's?
Weird behavior but at least he kept his clothes on.

4. And of course buried in the article is this

As he drove, Mr. Brenner, a Republican who represents an area north of Columbus, appeared to keep his eyes mostly ahead as he listened and responded to questions from members of the state Controlling Board, a body of elected officials who make adjustments to the state budget.

(emphasis mine)

5. I'm surprised he wasn't masturbating and having a "cocktail" at the same time.

He should just buy a Tesla and leave the driving to them..... CRASH!

7. Locking

after review by the forum hosts, doesn’t meet the SOP for the LBN forum of “important news of national interest.”

Feel free to repost in GD or the Ohio group.
