Oops, LL forgot this one in the morning roundup: Mayor Vince Gray‘s kids have been scoring some sweet luxury box tickets to concerts and sporting events thanks to their dad’s hookup.

WTOP’s Mark Segraves has the scoop:

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray’s adult children have been given thousands of dollars’ worth of highly sought after sky suite tickets to numerous sold out concerts and events at Verizon Center since Gray took office last year. …

According to records provided by the mayor’s office, Carlos Gray has used the District’s Sky Suite to catch premier events including concerts by Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Britney Spears and Nicki Manaj. He’s also been provided tickets to Washington Wizards games and the circus.

The mayor’s office has provided Gray’s daughter, Jonice Gray Tucker, with at least 40 tickets as well as parking passes to events, including Disney On Ice, Cirque Du Soleil and concerts by Taylor Swift and Sade.

Gray says his kids often act as the city’s unpaid ambassadors, and that they often went to those events at his request to entertain guests.

Free tickets and elected officials, talk about a goldmine.
