Marc Fisher on the Council & Baseball

Marc Fisher breaks down where the council is on the baseball votes. And gets a good jab in on Williams while hes at it.

"If the council voted strictly according to members' track records of support for economic development projects, the result would be, at least, a 10 to 3 approval of the stadium lease the city has signed with Major League Baseball. If members did what would be most likely to win them their office of choice next year, the lease would go down 8 to 5, leaving the Washington Nationals to look toward the sparkle of Vegas.

If we had a mayor who knew how to horse-trade for votes, this would be a lock. But Tony Williams couldn't handle collecting signatures to get his name on the 2002 election ballot."
