Williams worried his baseball deal may still be rejected

You know you have a problem when you try to railroad your plan through without further review. So will Williams be leaving us with a gem, or a lump of coal?

"Mayor Tony Williams said Thursday one of his top priorities before leaving office is getting the stadium lease approved by the city council. But the council may not get a say in the matter.
Mark Touhey, Chairman of the D.C. Sports and Entertainment Commission, tells WTOP he is seeking a legal opinion on what contracts and documents pertaining to the new baseball stadium require city council approval.
D.C. Chair Linda Cropp says she is also seeking a legal opinion on the matter and will support whatever determination is reached by her lawyers.
Sources tell WTOP that baseball supporters want to avoid a showdown. Three of the council members who supported the original baseball legislation lost re-election."
