This bomb dropped around 7pm last night from the Washington Post:
“A consulting firm owned by D.C. Council member Jack Evans received 200,000 shares of stock in a digital sign company just before Evans promoted legislation that would have benefited the company by allowing it to operate in the District, emails and other documents show.”
It is worth reading the entire jaw dropping report.

A reader reports this was: “during the White House Correspondents Dinner on 4/28”
Ed. Note: This is not the first time people have been pissed at Evans’ parking prowess. We’ve previously learned that Council Members are not obligated to follow parking regulations except for fire hydrants of course.
Memorial Day parking to remember.
Cross at the crosswalk”
At this point we must recognize that the man gonna park where the man wanna park. Period.
