The political class is special


If you're the breast-feeding mother of a 12-week-old baby, don't even ask to be temporarily excused from jury duty unless you want to spend a night in jail or pay a $150 fine.

If you're a lowly construction worker who doesn't show up, well, you might end up cooling your heels in jail for three months before anyone notices.

If you're a politician, on the other hand, just alert the court that you won't be able to make it because you're busy that week. It's cool. You're not like those regular people, see?
