Columbia Heights ANC Member Used DC Issued Phone for Adult Chat Lines

From the Washington Post’s Mike DeBonis:

Yet one commissioner has used his government-paid cellphone to call such numbers at least 240 times since August 2011, according to phone records.

Lenwood O. Johnson, who represents a district in Columbia Heights, spent more than 158 hours — nearly a week — on the “D.C. Raven” and “D.C. Alibi” chat lines, in addition to making many other personal calls.

    Are we surprised? That man is a disaster.

    Adult telephone chat lines? What is this? 1989?

    • ah

      I ask myself that whenever I see these ads on TV during local sports events. “Want a man who will listen? . . . .” Hilarious.

    For those who live in this district, vote for Anthony Cimino, so we can finally send Lenwood packing.

      I don’t live in this district, but would vote for Cimino if I did.

      Isn’t Johnson the ANC rep who was rumored to not even live in his district?

        He registers to run with a PO Box address which doesn’t seem fair or legal. You either live in the district or not. I hope its a new day in that SMD and they vote that fool out once and for all!!

          He used to live around the corner from me in the apartment complex on Columbia Rd., between Sherman and 11th St., that was until he was evicted for not paying his rent, and this was in a rent-cntrolled building. Oh, and he was also issued a warrant for arrest last year when he lived at that building, and I believe the warrant was for the illegal use of ANC funds for personal use. I’m glad to see that his troubles last year have influenced him to change his ways this year…

        Apparently I remembered correctly:

        ANC member does not make calls from D.C. very often

    There was a thing on the ballot about removing councilmembers who do illegal/ sleazy stuff while in office. Vote for that!

    +1 and then some. Lenwood O. Johnson is a parody of a bad ANC Commissioner, yet he exists in the flesh in blood. Shame on us if we let him stay.

    I wish this were my ANC rep… it would be so poetic.

      clarification: I wish my ANC rep had been busted for unscrupulous behaviour….

    Good opportunity to remind folks in ANC 1B-12 to vote for anyone BUT Dan Wittels. The man is running a campaign that is stealthly funded by the reactionary group, “Shaw Dupont Citizens Alliance,” whose primary aim is to impose a Wallach Place-driven liquor license moratorium on the ENTIRE U Street Corridor.
