City Paper is not for tourists
Just revealed on the D.C. Politics Hour With Kojo and Jonetta: Carol Schwartz has resigned from the D.C. Republican State Committee. The at-large councilmember has belonged to the GOP for her entire political career, though she’s always gotten plenty of support from Democratic voters.
This seems to be not quite as clean a break as fellow at-large member David Catania made with the Republicans. Catania became an independent soon after George W. Bush expressed support for a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. UPDATE: Schwartz Chief of Staff John Abbot calls in to clarify that Schwartz is only rotating off the committee’s slate. Schwartz, he assures, is still very much a Republican.
