    I have not seen any information that Orange has been subpenoed.

    Can anyone explain to me why?

    For a guy you all claim is more corrupt that anyone else no one can find solid proof he is a detriment to the citizens...

  • Barrie Daneker

    Exactly...I believe VO is within all legal boundaries!

  • RealDC

    The At-Large race should be cancelled due to the lack of quality candidates.

  • skinsfan83

    @RealDC lack of quality where? What has VO done that makes him unfit for the council?

    Everytime election time comes around no one can ever tell me honestly one good reason he should not be elected lol

    What you have here is a crop of DC residents who follow each other's lead. That's why you can never hear any of them state why Orange should lose beyond..he worked for pepco (ok AND) or that he's "old dc." Neither of them are good reasons but they latch onto the meme because it easily fits within their narrow agenda.

    @skinsfan83- LOL. Really? His time has come and gone. Send his greasy, bama a$$ away!
    Biddle is no better, he played the ultimate insider game with the Democratic State Committee move to get in office but as we have seen, HE SUCKS! No agenda, no ideas, no loyalty...etc. The corny Bama is not electable! Shapiro, he quit the PG council, enough said. Go away. Her Holiness is the only one that is left, really? Someone name Holiness, lol. Just cancel the election!

  • skinsfan83

    @RealDC his time come and gone? Barry damn near 76yrs old, you clearly have no legitimate reason.

  • RealDC

    @skinsfan83- Legitimate reason or illegitimate reason: We have seen the best he can offer. It does not get any better than what he has done. Personally, he is a greasy mofo that needs to go away. No more oranges, number 5s on the lapel, big Os on the lapel, orange shirts,hats, etc. and any other gimmicks that his bama a$$ can come up with. He reminds me of the minister on the stage at the talent show scene in Coming to America.......Greaszzzzzy!!

    Btw - Barry at 76 is still better than anybody on the council and I'm not a Barry supporter.
