D.C. Council chair's SUV violated law
D.C. Council Chairman Kwame Brown "inappropriately requested" that District officials violate the law by providing him a leased Lincoln Navigator SUV that cost taxpayers $2,000 a month, Tim Craig reports over at the D.C. Wire.
According to a report issued this morning by D.C. Council member Tommy Wells (D-Ward 6), District law prohibits the leasing or buying of city vehicles that get less than 22 miles per gallon.
"The preliminary finding highlights many troubling signs and warrant an oversight hearing to specifically review in greater detail the decision-making process for official vehicle procurement and stewardship of public funds," the report concludes.
