    I doubt that the secrecy is intended to protect Thompson. It's more likely that it is intended to protect other people he donated to who were unaware of his straw-donor activities and are not suspected of colluding with him to perpetrate election fraud.

  • RealDC

    Twain or Lincoln said it best: "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt".

    Bowser has just removed all doubt!!

    DeBonis' interview with Bowser is epic. She is painfully stupid and obnoxiously ambitious. And unnecessarily very nasty towards Mayor Gray and his administration. Not cool, especially when Gray has not even made a decision on seeking re-election.

    Thanks ward 4. This is what happens when you let self-serving, delusional folks hang around in a council job. Now she believes her "sh** don't stink". SMH. It is unbelievable that Bowser represents ward 4...... Really, there is nobody else in ward 4 that can run for the council?...... She is PAINFUL!

    No indictment, no conviction.... 4 more years for the "One-City" team!!

  • Drez

    The Bowser interview was very good.
    Isn't Gray in jail yet?

  • noodlez

    WE CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON THE DOWNTOWN RESIDENT TO KEEP THE FIRE BURNING AS IT APPLIES TO THE POLITICAL DEATH OF THE WORST MAYOR DC EVER HAD. EVERYONE ELSE HAS LET IT GO. SLIM GOT TO GIVE CREDIT TO YOUR LOYALTY, FAITHFULNESS AND THE GO DOWN WITH THE SHIP ATTITUDE.

    I THINK BOWSER AND FENTY GOT SOMETHING GOING ON.
    HER COLORS ARE GREEN SURROUNDED BY YELLOW.
    THAT IS A SUBLIMINAL SIGN FOLKS!!!!

    I'M NOT TRYING TO BE NASTY OR ANYTHING BUT WHEN I LOOK AT THAT SIGN WITH THE PLACEMENT OF THE REPRESENTATIVE COLORS I SEE FLENTY ALL UP IN DAT IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE.
    WHY COULDN'T IT HAVE BEEN YELLOW SURROUNDED BY GREEN?
    THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE LOGICAL.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8WZ-Ba-gps
    SHEENA GOT ON YELLOW AND LISTEN TO THE LYRICS ESPECIALLY WITH THE UNFORTUNATE SITUATION WITH THE FENTY MARRIAGE.
    THIS SHIT IS TOO COINCIDENTAL????

    ONE CITY.

  • Drez

    THE DOWNTOWN RESIDENT TO KEEP THE FIRE BURNING AS IT APPLIES TO THE POLITICAL DEATH OF THE WORST MAYOR DC EVER HAD..
    Yup.
    I'll put out that candle in the window the day Vincent "I am not a crook" Gray is indicted.

  • Drez

    Oh, and is anyone else amused by the apparently coordinated meme that's being rolled out about how Bowser is apparently either a lesbian or is fucking Fenty?
    Classy

  • RealDC

    LOL.... I could careless about who or what Bowser or Fenty is "sleeping with. As a matter of fact I cannot even imagine the thought......ughhhhh.

    Now, what I like to hear is her "big ideas" for the city. Or her goals that she says need "urgent" results. Really, what is her plan? Because her 'hero's" take over the school plan was half-baked and just died. How is the Fenty-Rhee School Reform working? Oh, ok, its Mayor Gray's fault. Right.

    Coolidge was number 2 on the school renovation list in 2007 and re-building still has not started but according to Bowser that is Mayor Gray's fault....Thats a LIE!

  • noodlez

    TIME OUT DREZ!! COORDINATED MEME??? DUDE THE FENTY IN BOWSER CONNECTION BEEN MUMBLED ABOUT SINCE HE GAVE HER HIS COUNCIL SEAT BACK WHEN HE WAS THE SHIT.

    NOW THAT HE IS SOME SHIT ONE CAN EASILY DEDUCE THAT SOMETHING IS A BREWING BETWEEN THE TWO. CHAMP LOOK AT HER CAMPAIGN SIGN AND TELL ME THAT ONE CAN NOT CONCLUDE THAT FLENTY IS NOT SWIMMING IN THAT?
    DUDE THERE IS GREEN ALL IN THAT YELLOW!

  • Drez

    LOL
    I guess One City can't conceive of a 40 year old woman who isn't either married, pregnant, or a lesbian.
    At least that's my take-away from the comments on these pages over the last several days from One City supporters.

  • KeepIt100

    Bowser's resum'e is thin. Her ideas are merely a regurgitation of those of Adrian Fenty. There is nothing new or fresh about where she wants to take the city. City services have steadily improved since Tony Williams was Mayor and established Customer Service Operations (727-1000, now 311).I don't care if she were 40 or 400, I am just underwhelmed by here attacks against Gray versus a vision for the city which suggests to me she has none. Contrary to her statement, things are moving in this city at a rapid rate. Streetcars were delayed because under a previous administation they were poorly planned. Short of Tony Williams running again, I'm sticking with what I know, short of an indictment of the Mayor which each day appears less and less likely.

  • ward4

    Bowser sounded like a 16 year old running for class president in the DeBonis interview.

    After reading the interview: I have no idea what her signature policy goals are; I have no idea what her educational experience or work experience are; I have no idea why she would be a better Mayor than Gray;

    And this is in a softball "getting to know you" interview.

    Are people really disappointed in the pace of development in the city? I'm not so sure about that.

    And I'm also not sure why she's apparently so petty that she can't acknowledge that the house hasn't burned down while Gray was Mayor.

    She has no vision and she seems in fact quite small-minded.

  • Concerned Senior

    Mr. Drez

    From my humble perspective, the only one obsessing about the comments on these pages over the last several days regarding Ms. Bowser's sexuality is you! It is not attractive young man. It is similar to your obsession for seeing our sitting Mayor in a predicament only the US Attorney's Office can create.

    I am not only concerned, I am also curious: What would differentiate Mayor Gray from being one of those 'unaware of his straw-donor activities'? What exactly is your real agenda? Why would any rational person want the sitting Mayor of the Nation's Capital to be in jail for something the US Attorney's Office has not charged him with. That question (the real agenda) also goes out to Muriel Bowser, David Catania and Mary Cheh who asked him to step down.

  • Drez

    ^ Ha!
    Sockpuppet CYA is so amusing.

  • Sandra Renee Hicks

    Correction "Bowser."

  • S.E.

    As far as Bowser running for Mayor...I've got Three (3) words for you..........

  • Concerned Senior

    Sorry Mr. Drez,

    I don't understand your response to my question about why a rational person would want to see the sitting Mayor of The District of Columbia jailed before he has been charged with anything.

    I do not understand the term "Sockpuppet" so I fail to see the amusement of which you speak. Care to elaborate or are you too busy nursing your very own personal grudges that nobody else could possibly understand?

  • truth hurts

    Rotflmao. Sockpuppets abound on this site.

  • noodlez

    @DREZ-YOUR COMMENT #9 IS SO TELLING BECAUSE HER PLATFORM IS SO WEAK AND SO CONNECTED TO THE WORST MAYOR DC EVER HAD THAT THE ONLY BUZZ BEING GENERATED ABOUT HER IS HER PRIVATE AND PUBLIC LIFE WITH FENTY.

    FYI-WHEN YOU RUN FOR PUBLIC OFFICE YOUR LIFE BECOMES PUBLIC!

    WHEN MAYOR GRAY ANNOUNCED ALL I READ WAS FOLK CLOWNING HIM ON HAND DANCING, HIS AGE AND HIS LOOKS. THESE ARE COMMENTS MADE ON WCP AND IF SHE CAN'T HANDLE THIS BULLSHIT THEN SHE IS DOOMED FROM THE START.

    NO EXEC EXPERIENCE AND JUST REHASHING THE SAME OL'GREEN MACHINE RHETORIC. DIDN'T SHE SEE THE ASS WHOOPING FENTY TOOK DURING THE LAST PRIMARY? HOW CAN SHE NOT SEE THAT THAT BAMMA'S NAME DOESN'T HOLD WEIGHT.

  • Drez

    Yes, TH, they do.
