"If elected officials don't follow the law, what hope is there for everybody else?" But during his 2005 mayoral campaign, he topped the list of poster pests with 4,218 summonses and a $307,725 fine. A City Hall rep said, "He's making a point about accountability -- if you get a ticket, then you should pay it."
