Mystery Nadeau Hater Papers Adams Morgan

photo 2 (4)

Brianne Nadeau's upset over Jim Graham in the Ward 1 D.C. Council primary is more than a month old, but time hasn't healed all wounds for one Nadeau foe. Witness the construction barrier at 17th and Columbia Road NW, which has been papered with anti-Nadeau flyers like the one above.

LL's not sure about the wisdom of associating a political opponent with Adrian Fenty in a ward he won by 22 percentage points, but this is actually one of the more coherent fliers. Others with Nadeau's face declare her "New young all about the money, Honey" and an "Arrogant Bully."

Nadeau, whom Graham accused of unflatteringly editing his cheeks and teeth for campaign mailers, remains in high spirits despite the stapled attacks.

"Do my teeth look photoshopped to you?" Nadeau emails LL.

    She is an arrogant bully, not sure what's confusing about that.That being said, this is just silly. Apparently it's going to be a long four years.

  • Typical DC BS

    Arrogant bully? Please - compared to the crook she replaced, she'll be a vast improvement.

  • OG in DC

    Bully? Did I miss something? Who did she bully? The little man with the bowtie who been bullying everybody for the last 15 years?

  • Ward1United

    Nadeau is far from a bully in any way from my interactions w her. That said, she may need to become one to deal with some of the idiots that populate our ward and city. I will be surprised if she is not the most open and transparent of anyone on the council when her first term ends. I am glad she has a sense of humor about this...there will be more no matter how successful she is.

  • Not Chris Otten

    With these flyers, perhaps she'll realize that Chris Otten really isn't her friend!

  • Ward One Resident

    Just because you know someone/interact with them as a politician does not mean you know them on a personal level. I'm just sayin'

  • REALDC

    Something is NOT right about this woman. Yes, Graham had to go but she is a looney tune.

    Good luck ward 1!

  • Ward One Resident

    Sign of things to come? All but one of the people she supported for the Ward One Dems lost (the one person who she supported who won ran unopposed).

    First of all, Nadeau has yet to come clean about her shady loan application. She is no way currently transparent- at all. Ward1United- are either willfully lying or blinded to the truth in front of you or else you know zero about Ward One. The problem Graham had was while he knew her loan application was shady, he was also part of her shadiness because she asked him to bend the rules.

    The next time anyone sees Nadeau, ask her the release dates for the incarcerated members of the 17th and Euclid Crew. Graham knows this, Nadeau doesn't know jack about the Ward she may represent. Frankly, she's far too naïve about the crews and gangs operating in Ward 1 to be councilmember. She's the reincarnation of Frank Smith. She's a one-termer who got the nomination based on a fluke of poor voting attendance. She's a joke.

    Oh, and by the way, I will NOT vote for Nadeau in the general election and I will encourage that no Ward 1 residents vote for her in the general election. Ward 1 needs better and she doesn't have the job yet.

    Brianne Nadeau is direct, clear, fair and a go-getter. What's the matter with that? Oh yeah ... those upset with her trouncing would rather have a Cm who think he's a Czar with Tammany Hall skillset. Give me a break. Nadeau is a breath of fresh air! Congrats to our Ward for making the wise decision. "Left-handed but not left wing."
