Ward 2 Council member Jack Evans

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.

Initial reactions: (more…)

evans parking

“Dear PoPville,

Jack Evans (Ward 2 council member) parked like an a**hole tonight in Dupont Circle. It’s bad enough navigating the sidewalks and intersections when they’re covered in ice, but this entitled politician made it even worse by parking his car blocking a pedestrian crossing and handicap access point to cross New Hampshire Ave NW. He forced everyone to walk in the street into oncoming traffic. I’m sick of entitled politicians treating this city like they’re own personal kingdom.

Jack, you have to follow the law like everybody else. And if you decide to break them (like you did tonight) you might remember you license plate makes it easy to figure out you’re the a**hole.

Signed,

A Ward 2 Constituent who will not be voting for you during the next election cycle”

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.

UPDATE from Council Member Evans:

“I want to apologize for parking in a fire hydrant zone on Thursday evening. To be honest, I didn’t realize there was a fire hydrant. That is, of course, no excuse, and I now fully recognize that was not a legal parking spot.”

“Dear PoPville,

My husband and I were having dinner with friends at West End Bistro when we noticed a back car doing a pretty sloppy job of parallel parking, bumping the other two cars enough to draw our attention. To make it even more entertaining, the driver was attempting to park right in front of a fire hydrant. Then we noticed the license plate said DC Council! We assumed the driver/apparent councilperson hadn’t seen the hydrant, and would realize their error as soon as they opened the car door. Nope.

Jack Evans stepped out in a tux, looked straight at the fire hydrant, put a cigar in his mouth, and walked toward the entrance of the Ritz. It was like some sort of caricature of a political fat cat. We left maybe 45 minutes later and he hadn’t returned, so it wasn’t as if he ran a quick errand.

In front of a hydrant?! Really??”

Ed. Note: We’ve previously learned that Council Members are not obligated to follow parking regulations however, I’m not sure if that applies to fire hydrants given the safety risk.
