LL’s forthcoming column takes a look at whether there’s anything slightly stinky about Attorney General Eric Holder and his relationship to District officials who are currently under federal investigation.
One factoid LL’s editors thought interesting: The attorney general for the United States of America has a less than stellar voting record, at least if records from the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics are accurate.
BOEE records show that Holder did not vote in this year’s special election, which Vincent Orange won. Nor did Holder vote in the 2004 presidential election. Besides not joining the 202,027 Washingtonians who voted for John Kerry‘s losing presidential bid that year, Holder also missed out on voting on the races for delegate, at-large councilmember, and the all important ANCs.
The Ward 3 resident did, however, donate $250 each to the re-election campaigns of then-Ward 4 Councilmember Adrian Fenty and Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans, neither of whom he was eligible to vote for.
LL has reached out to Holder’s flack for comment, and will update as needed.
