The latest on the controversy surrounding Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley

Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley is facing increasing scrutiny after refusing to pull over for a police officer, and then berating and cursing out the officer for doing his job.

After the incident, Doorley issued a statement that was contradicted by police body-worn camera footage. On Monday morning, she released a video apologizing for her behavior and saying she will turn the incident over to a district attorney in another community for review. She also said she will undergo ethics training.

Our guests discuss the latest details; the legal ethics; and the public implications when a district attorney mocks the idea that she would be able to be prosecuted for breaking the law.
