Gray Transition and Inauguration Donors
Behold the list of donors to Mayor Vince Gray's transition and inauguration fête.
Most interesting donation LL saw: A $10k gift from the Embassy of the State of Qatar. Maybe it's a consolation prize for stealing the 2022 World Cup. There's also plenty o' cash from developers and other monied interests who are accustomed to writing checks to politicians.
If you happen to be filled with regret by not seeing your name on the list, fret not. The Post reports that Gray still needs to raise about $170k to cover the $900k needed for both the transition and the inauguration, with $100k going to cover just the cost of putting carpet down at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
LL is still waiting on list of expenses from Gray, as well as donations and expenses from Chairman Kwame Brown.
