Cropp Stuns Mayor With Baseball Package

Council Chairman Linda Cropp stunned Mayor Williams with a late amendment to change the requirements for funding to include a requirement for 50% private funding for the new baseball stadium.

This does, however, jeopardize MLB’s return to the District. The deal that MLB had with the Mayor was for a new stadium, built with public funds, in the District. Now, it appears, that deal is off. What this means for the Nationals, I don’t know. But it does mean I’ll be snapping up a couple extra hats for when the team is moved away from DC shortly hereafter thanks to the assholatry of the DC Council
