Councilmember Tommy Wells Sends Check to Graham Challenger

Remember the Paul Wellstone-esque video by Ward 1 Council candidate Bryan Weaver we highlighted here a few weeks ago? On Washington City Paper's Loose Lips blog, Jason Cherkis reports it's getting results—Councilmember Tommy Wells sent Weaver a $100 check after seeing the video. Wells hasn't given any money to his council colleague Jim Graham, who Weaver hopes to defeat in the Sept. 14 primary.

Weaver still probably has a long way to go. Yes, the D.C. Chamber of Commerce decided not to back Graham, either—but they went with Jeff Smith, another challenger. Still, the video's worth watching again, no matter who winds up winning the election:

    Isn't this a little unprofessional?!? I mean, endorse the man, but don't send him a check.

    I really respect Mr. Weavers effort to illuminiate the major issues of ward one. Mr. Weaver will soon obtain my full financial support. The days of the professional politician is over. The Distict of Columbia is in dire need of new leadership such as Mr. Weaver.
