Nickles Settles in Chinatown

D.C. Attorney General Peter J. Nickles picked an apartment on 7th Street in Chinatown when he moved into the District earlier this month, reports WTOP.

Nickles's address has been an issue since he was brought into the administration. All mayoral appointees are required to live in the District and Nickles was commuting in from Great Falls in Virginia.

Nickles told The Post he had moved in on May 5.

"I have moved. I have a D.C. license plate. I have my picture on a D.C. license. I'm paying D.C. taxes," Nickles said.

Public Citizen, the nonprofit consumer advocacy group founded by perennial presidential candidate Ralph Nader in 1971, has filed a Freedom of Information Law request to get Nickles's exact address.

Who Cares? Whether he lives in The District or Great Falls,VA. He's still a crook. Does anyone really believe that he's paying his own rent?!DC deserves so much better.

Nickles hasn't settled anywhere. One of his first statements about the residency requirements was that DC doesn't have anything comparable to his McClean estate. Then at his confirmation hearing he stated that he would "buy a condo or something and pay DC taxes". He never stated that he would live there. I hope the reporters hound him just like they hound Fenty's whereabouts and prove that he still lives in Va. where he actually belongs.
