Branstad on Board Campaign

Updated: Tuesday, July 16 2013, 09:42 PM CDT

DES MOINES, Iowa (KCCI)—A progressive advocacy group is offering a bumper sticker mocking Gov. Branstad in exchange for a donation.  Progress Iowa posted the sticker and fundraising information on it's website and Facebook page Tuesday.

"Now you can speed like Gov. Terry Branstad is riding right along with you! Get your sticker today and you can be above the law just like the Governor," the group wrote on its Facebook page Tuesday.

The group said it will provide the sticker for a $3 or more donation.

"Of course no one should be able to disobey traffic laws, not even the Governor. His refusal to apologize or hold anyone in his administration accountable after his personal driver was caught speeding is an insult to those of us who have to follow the law," the group said.

The move comes hours after an new Associated Press report was released showing more than 3,200 license plates have been issued to local, state and federal agencies, including the governor's SUV, with a designation that allows them to avoid tickets from Iowa traffic cameras.

Several cities said they do not issue tickets to drivers whose plates are not included in police databases because they're conducting undercover or sensitive work.

Iowa Department of Transportation data requested by The Associated Press shows that 350 agencies have been issued at least one license plate with that designation, ranging from small police departments to the Transportation Security Administration.
