D.C. Releases Sample Housing Lease Agreement

District government officials promised yesterday to draw up a sample lease for those looking to rent out their apartments or houses for the inauguration. The Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs has released this form for residents to use as a template. Attorney General Peter Nickles said yesterday that people may choose to add other contingencies to the lease and Mayor Adrian M. Fenty (D) stressed that the sample contract does not meant the government would be culpable if anything goes wrong. Fenty eased some rental restrictions yesterday.

In this economic terror facing the country, people having no homes, jobs, their utilities like water, heat electricity etc shut of and many folks not having enough food, the most prudent thing would be to save the taxpayers the expense and move the ceremonies inside the US Capitol. It will also solve the safety issue at the same time.

The people wanting to attend these balls for a paid price and other donations can pay out of there pockets. But the bottom line is these SOBs eat cake and the rest have to look for food at soup kitchens and charity hand outs.
