Sandy Berger Facing Another Slap on the Wrest

Less than a month after he was sentenced for stealing and destroying top national security documents, former Clinton National Security Advisor Sandy Berger has been charged with violating the terms of his probation.

Virginia police say the top Clinton aide was nabbed for reckless driving on Sept. 10 after he was clocked doing 88 miles-per-hour in a 55-mile zone on Interstate 66, a major highway going into Washington.

On Wednesday, Berger appeared before U.S. District Magistrate Deborah Robinson, the same judge who sentenced him in the theft case two days before the speeding incident. Judge Robinson told the court that because Berger's new crime had violated the terms of his probation, she's considering increasing his sentence. Before his latest brush with the law, Berger was ordered to pay a $50,000 fine, perform 100 hours of community service and spend two years on probation.

If you want to contact the judge about here actions, give her a call.
