Impersonating the Police?

I've been ignoring this story for days, but it has legs.  So, here goes ...

The Boston Globe reports:

State Police are investigating one of Mitt Romney's top campaign aides for allegedly impersonating a trooper by calling a Wilmington company and threatening to cite the driver of a company van for erratic driving, according to two law enforcement sources familiar with the probe.

Jay Garrity, who is director of operations on Romney's presidential campaign and a constant presence at his side, became the primary target of the investigation, according to one of the sources, after authorities traced the cellphone used to make the call back to him. The investigation comes three years after Garrity, while working for Romney in the State House, was cited for having flashing lights and other police equipment in his car without proper permits.


Marc Ambinder has more.

 Update:  Romney aide to take "leave of absence" -- Jonathan Martin reports: 

Jay Garrity, the longtime personal aide to former Gov. Mitt Romney now under investigation by the Massachusetts State Police for impersonating a state trooper, has been removed from the campaign trail.

"Jay has taken a leave of absence from the campaign in order to resolve these complaints," said Romney spokesman Kevin Madden.
