Putting the pedal to the metal of his old man’s Olds, Albert Arnold Gore, the 17-year-old son of Vice President Al Gore, was caught going 97 miles per hour in a 55 zone in North Carolina. Cited for endangering “persons and property” the young squid will face a judge on Sept. 13, according to the ticket, which the ever-vigilant THE SMOKING GUN has posted on its Web site.

The ticket is part of the site’s “Campaign 2000 police blotter,” which includes a spooky police report on “hunkalicious” Dubya nephew George P. Bush, as well.

REAL QUICK, REAL URGENT

Minority rule, corruption, disinformation, attacks on those who dare tell the truth: There is a direct line from what's happening in Russia and Ukraine to what's happening here at home. And that's what MoJo's Monika Bauerlein writes about in "Their Fight Is Our Fight" to unpack the information war we find ourselves in and share a few examples to show why the power of independent, reader-supported journalism is such a threat to authoritarians.

Corrupt leaders the world over can (and will) try to shut down the truth, but when the truth has millions of people on its side, you can't keep it down for good. And there's no more powerful or urgent argument for your support of Mother Jones' journalism right now than that. We need to raise about $450,000 to hit our online fundraising budget in these next few months, so please read more from Monika and pitch in if you can.
