“Beset by a crisis of leadership, tens of thousands of dollars worth of unpaid bills to the city and a possible federal investigation into financial irregularities linked to a former D.C.

Lots of readers wrote in and tweeted just before 11pm last night:
“I’m seeing lots of police and police tape up around Rabaut Park, near 16th & Columbia Road, but I haven’t seen anything about it on the DC Police twitter feed. Both Harvard Street and Argonne Place are blocked off and filled with police vehicles, and it looks like police tape is blocking off any pedestrian entrance to the park. It’s been like this since around 10pm. Have you heard anything about what might have happened?”
A heads up to Farragut North-area pedestrians. 8 cops were at the Connecticut/K St intersection this morning handing out these flyers and issuing $20 tickets to pedestrians who crossed against the light. There’s a right turn lane from K onto Conn that’s usually empty or red, so everyone always crosses that regardless of the light — but today, at least, you could be out $20!”
Also another reader adds:
“Just a friendly heads up to the PoPville community– I just took the circulator to work and got off at Farragut North. There were at least 6 to 8 cops taking on the north corners of Connecticut handing out tickets to jaywalkers.
You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
