New York Rep. Anthony Weiner has made it a personal crusade to crack down on parking ticket scofflaws. So, as is the case with so many members of Congress, he’s become too distracted with policing everybody else to concern himself with the fines he’s been getting for parking the Weiner-mobile unlawfully:

The self-appointed scourge of diplomatic scofflaws in Manhattan, Weiner racked up more than $2,000 in parking tickets around Capitol Hill.

From 2007 to March of this year, Weiner’s ticket total was $2,180 for violations near the Capitol and at Reagan Washington National Airport, Roll Call, the Capitol Hill newspaper, reported Tuesday.

A Weiner spokesman said all of the fines have been paid since the paper first contacted the office.

Members of Congress are traditionally very responsible when it comes to paying what they owe after they’re caught.

Of course, there’s a good reason the tickets weren’t paid: The old “I never got the reminder” excuse:

Aides to the Queens Democrat claim that part of the problem arose because D.C. officials sent notices of the fines to a bad address.

What did Weiner think those dozens and dozens of little pieces of paper stuck under his windshield wipers were? Obamacare waiver requests?
