HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – Connecticut’s state treasurer may have handed Hartford police the wrong registration document before her car was towed by authorities last week.

But Jeffrey Beckham, a spokesman for the state Department of Administrative Services, tells The Hartford Courant it’s not clear why a computer check did not show that the vehicle was properly registered to the state.

Denise Nappier was stopped by police in the parking lot of a Hartford housing project last Thursday. Beckham said it appears she gave an officer the registration for a 2007 car she had previously been issued.

Police charged Nappier with misusing license plates and operating an unregistered vehicle. They towed her state car and she walked three miles home.

Hartford State’s Attorney Gail Hardy has said the charges will be dropped.

    Hmmm…Democrat pol commits crime and will not pay the price. I think I have heard this story before. That is not how it worked for me…how about you?

    Why is it that there are two sets of rules? One for the Democrat leadership and
    one for us?

    Guberner Dan’l…could you please list for us what laws we have to obey, and which laws we don’t have to obey? The line keeps moving with your administration.

    If it happened to an “ordinary” person they would still be behind bars. Three mile walk home? God knows she can use the exercise. That’s a cake walk for goodness sake!

    I guess my question is; “Why does she have a free state car ?”. I have to buy my own car to drive to work and back home.

    Nappier is responsible for money matters for the state, but can’t comply with a simple motor vehicle registration requirement? Also, recent reports are that the 3 cops offered to call her a ride, call her friends, or give her a ride home. Some things need to be more carefully scrutinized, like the detailed bill from the restaurant, the registrations for all other state issued vehicles, etc.
