PA Official Resigns After Video Shows Her Swearing at Cops

TENAFLY, N.J. (AP/Hamodia) -

A Port Authority commissioner who abruptly resigned last week had been caught on camera delivering a tirade to officers during a traffic stop.

The Tenafly Police Department released the video Tuesday showing Caren Turner, the powerful agency’s ethics chair, attempting to pull rank on the officers who pulled over her daughter for an expired registration.

“Don’t call me miss; I’m commissioner,” she said. “You may not tell me when to take my child,” Turner said later. “You may … not tell me when I may take my kid and her friends, who are Ph.D. students from MIT and Yale. You may tell me nothing.”

Turner, a Democrat, was chosen in 2017 by Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, who was pushing for more women on the board.
