MARY EVA CANDON, THE chair of the District’s Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Board, told Loose Lips (10/22) that she didn’t mean to solicit funds from civic and business activists who appeared before the ABC Board to pay for her trip to the Democratic National Convention last year. She told LL that the fund-raising letter she sent to me, Dorothy Brizill, was actually intended for Donna Brazile, aide to Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton. This is marginally more believable than Candon’s testimony during her confirmation hearing before the D.C. Council last June, when she said that the letter was intended for Councilmember Harold Brazil. Or maybe, by changing her story now, Candon is just trying to prove that all Brazils/Braziles/Brizills are alike to her.
