Breaking News: State to Pay Out $335K Settlement for Carole Migden's Erratic Driving

Boom! There goes another $335K.
The state of California will pay out a $335,000 settlement in the matter of a former senator's case of DWM -- Driving While Migden.

The San Franciscan's much-publicized 2007 highway incident left a 30-mile trail of terrified 911 callers and ended with the veteran politician slamming her state-issued hybrid SUV into the back of 31-year-old Vallejo resident Ellen Butawan's Honda.

Late last month the state signed off on a $335,000 settlement with Butawan, according to Steve Gevercer, the state Department of Justice attorney handling the case on Migden's behalf. While the two parties have agreed in principle, the paperwork has not yet been signed by Solano County Superior Court Judge Scott Kays. 

Migden, currently a member of the state's Integrated Waste Management Board, is rumored to be toying with the notion of running for District 10 supervisor. For a complete list of bus and train lines serving D-10, see For residents of D-10 not named Migden, see here.
