Saw this jerk cut off a pedestrian in a crosswalk this morning, then make an illegal u-turn through the Penn Ave. bike lanes, so he could park in front of the Wilson building. Real classy for a public office holder.

Why wasn't he asked 'how much tax payers money are you willing to spend to lure the Redskins back to DC?' This is wasted money and I totally oppose tax payer money being spent to lure sports teams to the city.

Interesting official but the questions you asked are like questions in a slam book. If it was me asking questions, I would ask him about issues in the community.

He's just as corrupt as the rest of the bunch. Ego centric self serving individuals who are more interested in their perks than the people of the District of Columbia. Sad.
