Lawmaker faces charges for driving with suspended license

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A state lawmaker from southeastern Pennsylvania is facing charges she was driving with a suspended license in two incidents involving crashes.

Delaware County Rep. Margo Davidson told The Philadelphia Inquirer she's pleading not guilty to charges from a Feb. 2 accident.

Police and court documents say the 55-year-old Democrat received a summary charge when her car hit another vehicle while she was pulling out of a driveway. Davidson disputes a police report that says she's to blame.

This week, police charged Davidson with four more summary offenses in connection with a Jan. 11 accident in which Davidson allegedly left the scene.

Officials say Davidson was driving a taxpayer-funded car both times.

Davidson says she paid a 2016 traffic ticket in Virginia that led to her license being suspended.
