We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

This week, Loose Lips ran his Secret Santa column, resurrecting a tradition in which LL gives back to all those who have given him so much. Problem is, LL had to skip of lot of deserving folks in the Wilson Building and elsewhere, which has made for several unhappy politicos. All this week, LL’s been going around, saying he’d make a “supplemental appropriation.”

That’s a job I’m pawning off on you, readers. Here’s a selection of folks LL didn’t have room in his stocking to bestow with gifts, but are probably deserving all the same. Let ’em have it in the comments:

  • Ward 1 Councilmember Jim Graham
  • Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans
  • Ward 3 Councilmember Mary Cheh
  • Ward 4 Councilmember Muriel Bowser
  • Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Wells
  • Ward 7 Councilmember Yvette Alexander
  • At-Large Councilmember Kwame Brown
  • At-Large Councilmember Carol Schwartz
  • Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development Neil Albert
  • Fire Chief Dennis Rubin
  • Fenty Communications Director Carrie Brooks
  • Soon-to-be-former Attorney General Linda Singer
  • Legendary tax thief Harriette Walters
  • And anyone else is fair game, too…
