Jack Evans, Hometown Hero

By mike flugennockSunday - December 8th, 2019Categories: DC Local, elections

Well, isn’t this just all-time… Vincent Orange, DC Chamber of Commerce CEO and former disgraced DC City Council member, is throwing a bash for himself and a host of fellow grifters to congratulate themselves for bringing big-league baseball back to DC. Anybody who was anybody making this city miserable back in the ’00s is going to be there, a turn-of-the-century rogues’ gallery featuring none other than former Mayor Tony “The Rat” Williams himself. Honorees’ schwag is to include replicas of the World Series trophy, and baseballs personally autographed by the owners of the Washington Nationals:

The truly spectacular irony here is that at a masturbatory shindig held by a guy who ended up resigning from the City Council after taking the Chamber gig, one of the honorees is our current champion multi-dipper, soon-to-be-bounced-out-of-his-seat and likely to end up with a C of C spot, Ward 2 Councilman Jack Evans — an irony so spectacular, in fact, that I’m really going to have to go lie down now.

It’s A Gas!

Every year the US House of Representatives’ Oversight Committee votes to approve the city budget of Washington, DC. Imagine, for a moment, that you live in any other city in the US, and your city can’t pass a budget or fund the implementation of new laws without the approval of a bunch of politicians hundreds of miles away who don’t even live in your state. That’s pretty much the situation we’re looking at here in the District Of Columbia.

In every session for the past four years, Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) has inserted a “rider” into the budget bill, preventing the District Of Columbia from passing laws to establish a framework and budget for implementing the legal sale of cannabis in Washington, DC. As of 2014, it’s been legal to possess, grow and consume cannabis (on private property), but we’re still trapped in a “gray market” or “sharing economy” in which actual cash sales are illegal — thanks to Rep. Harris.

Another New DC Flag

Just last night here in Your Nation’s Capital, an off-duty cop shot and wounded a couple of people over in Southeast. Cripes, it’s as if they get even worse when they go off-duty; what’s the damn deal with that?

I don’t know about anybody else in this town, but I didn’t like living in the “Murder Capital” the first time around.
