Gray Campaign Puts Out Another Anti-Bowser Video

The two leading mayoral hopefuls campaigned 10 minutes away from each other Sunday morning, with Vince Gray visiting Allen Chapel AME on Alabama Avenue SE and Muriel Bowser going to Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church near Fort Dupont Park.

LL headed to Bowser's stop, where the homily centered on rejoicing during Lent. Bowser has her own reasons to rejoice, with recent polls showing her tied or slightly ahead of Gray. But today brought less happy news for the Ward 4 councilmember, with Gray's camp releasing another anti-Bowser video for its suddenly ubiquitous "Muriel Not Ready" campaign.

The last video, which has been getting heavy play on Internet video prerolls, centered on footage from the NewsChannel 8 debate where Bowser admitted she's only ever managed three or four people. The new spot slams Bowser for being ambivalent during Wednesday's WUSA9 debate about whether she'd retain schools chancellor Kaya Henderson, a line of attack also seized by the Jack Evans campaign last week and in Post article.

In other assorted election news, according to an email LL received this morning, the guy who illicitly plants flowers by the entrance to the Dupont Circle Metro is endorsing Bowser. Judging from the email, his endorsement is based entirely on the fact that Bowser "wrinkled her nose" when he complained to her that Metro staff ripped out his plants.

For what it's worth, the Phantom Planter also backs Brianne Nadeau in Ward 1.

    Kaya Henderson isn't the only one who needs to go! The Police Chief, The Fire Chief, The Director of Public Works and DMV. I've lived here for 76 years and I have never seen anything like this CORRPUTION and LIES. All the these people are saying the same thing, "We See Improvement, But We Have All Long Way To Go". You see nothing is ever complete, they just get bigger pay checks and stuff their pockets while we the DC residents look on. Judge Judy put it best when she said, "Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining". Well that's what we are being told. I don't see any valid candiate running for Mayor.

    Damn retired Cop 70, you want to clean house? That's what former Mayor Sharon Pratt-Kelly said. LOL
    Why is Bowser going to churches? The woman is Godless and I don't think she belongs to any church or attends church. Gray is Catholic and he does attends Mass from what I understand. All politicians are corrupt and liars. I think most D.C. voters will sit this election out and Muriel Bowser will win.

    Bowser will not win. She has generated no excitement within her own ward let alone the entire city.

    This is what desperation looks like. It's going to be great to watch the 50% of this city that are disgusting homophobe bigots have to pick between Bowser and Catania. "It's a cultural thang."

    To Retired Cop 70 What's wrong with the Police Chief? I understand about the Fire Chief and a few others . But, DC is andd can be a very violent City, other than all the raises she keeps getting I think the Police Chief Lanier, is doing a good job! Now , maybe you know a whole lot that I don't and I'm open to hear your reason!!

    Yep - Kaya had to go in like 2010...but Gray kept her for some reason.

    Did Kaya Really Say: "HATERS ARE GOING TO HATE."

    IF FOR ANYTHING SHE HAS TO GO BASED ON THAT STATEMENT ALONE. STILL THOUGH, PEOPLE ACTUALLY CALL MB GHETTO AND WE LISTEN TO THIS...REALLY THOUGH

    Is it too late to get Fenty to come back?

  8. #8

    Why is the church attendance of the Mayoral candidates relevant? Explain please, preferably with charts.

  9. #9

    Fenty? Please. That chump beat himself. He bit the hand that fed him and that hand slapped him right out of office.

    @DCShadyBoots: That is the best short description of why Fenty lost to Gray that I've ever read.

    It isnt the Fire Chief that's the issue. It's the employees. How many Fire Chief's have been here in the last ten years. Shuffling Chiefs isn't going to solve a thing.

    DESPERATION??? REALLY? THE 4TH COMMENT IS CLEAR CUT IGNORANCE!

    UNABLE TO RECOGNIZE POLITICS AT ITS BEST OR WORST IS A CLEAR BAROMETER OF THE FOLK WHO SUPPORT MURIEL BOWSER. NOT ONLY IS SHE NOT READY FOR THE OFFICE FOR WHICH SHE SEEKS HER SUPPORTERS ARE ALSO NOT READY FOR THE VOTING BOOTH!
