When LL got back to work on Monday he sent a note to staff for both Mayor Vince Gray and Council Chairman Kwame Brown asking for a copy of the donors who gave to their respective transition teams. You might remember that both Gray and Brown decided to forgo taking any public funds from the cash-strapped city in favor of using private donations.
Both Gray and Brown promised to disclose both the names of donors and how their transition teams spent the money. Gray disclosed some donors and expenses halfway through his transition. Brown said he’d make his donors’ names public after the transition was over.
It’s now Wednesday, ten days after both Gray and Brown were sworn in, and LL’s still waiting for a response. Maybe this friendly public shaming will help move things along…
