City Paper is not for tourists
WTOP’s Mark Segraves with another big scoop LL wish he had:
Most of those invited to D.C.’s Luxury Suite at the Verizon Center by Fenty either contributed the maximum $2,000 to Fenty’s campaign or worked on the campaign. The rest of the tickets, with only a few exceptions, went to friends, family and the mayor’s senior staffers of the mayor….
According to the list provided by the Fenty administration, tickets went to the Fenty 2006 campaign manager and the treasurer, as well as dozens of volunteers and donors. The mayor’s brothers and parents also received tickets.
Acting Attorney General Peter Nickels received tickets to the sold-out Springsteen show. School Chancellor Michelle Rhee is going to Hannah Montana.
Other fun details: The Fenty administration handed over only a partial list. And the tickets are controlled by John Falcicchio, a top Fenty campaign aide now working in the mayor’s office.
UPDATE, 4:40 P.M.: Rhee got tix, but Paul Strauss didn’t.
