Fenty Friend Retains Bolden

A. Scott Bolden, the politically-connected attorney known for helping his clients wade through D.C. government, is now representing Keith Lomax.

Lomax, the 46-year-old businessman and longtime friend of Mayor Adrian M. Fenty, had been driving the mayor's city-issued Lincoln Navigator - a no-no, according to city statute.

The mayor said earlier this week that he will no longer allow non-city employees to drive any of his city vehicles.

Bolden had no comment.

Most recently, he has represented W2Tech, one of the companies vying for the D.C. lottery contract, and Diane Gustus, a Tax and Revenue Office employee who had been charged with being involved in the embezzlement of millions of dollars.

Last year, charges were dropped against Gustus when prosecutors said they lacked the evidence to connect her to the crime.

Maryland and District Board's of Election and Maryland Attorney General,please tell me why this man needs an attorney if he and/or the Mayor has not broken any laws?

Has he voted in primaries as a resident in both Maryland AND Virginia?

WP stick with this one! An attorney now, after the "big" apology? Could this have something to do with voting in two places or contract-gate?

Will Mr. Lomax and his business associates be prosecuted for having "obtained certification by fraud or deceit or … furnished substantially inaccurate or incomplete ownership information" in accordance with DC Law 12-268″?

Something must really be up with this Keith Lomax character and his contracts. As SOON as the reporting/investigating started on that.... Fenty does an about face and all of a sudden has a change of heart? Puleeze.

And even SOONER, Mr. Lomax needs a lawyer! Everybody knows this whole situation stinks to hight heaven.

I hope the reporters at WAPO aren't that stupid. I wonder if Mr. Lomax was also being paid by the city for driving the Mayor on those "few" occasions that it occured? That would open up a whole new can of worms.

No wonder the Mayor has had a change of heart. By any means necessary, he has to get people off of this subject.

Follow the money... talk to the board of elections and ethics and office of contracting and procurement.... if you stick with this story and follow it to the end, the next thing we know, Fenty will be getting saved at some church to prove to us that he's changed. He will also swear up and down he didn't know Lomax all that well.

Let him know folks.... WE (the voters of DC) ARE NOT HAVING IT!!!! As one someone said earlier... put a fork in him cuz he is DONE!!!!
