Senator Russo slowed his car and pulled to the side of the road. He’d been stopped by the cops many times before, and they generally let him go with a warning. But this time was different. This time he hadn’t been speeding. This time, riding shotgun, was Janice, a highly-paid professional. She was a hooker, and she knew the route. Reaching into Russo’s jacket pocket, she pulled out the remnants of the eight ball of cocaine they’d been sharing, and surreptitiously shoved it in her pussy. It was at that moment that Russo knew, if they were able to shake the cops, that he was in for a monumental night.
