Lease Delay?! WTF?!

After a rally on Freedom Plaza today to round up support for the new stadium and a vote from the council tomorrow, apparently Mayor Williams pushed off the vote until the new year in order to get some technicalities taken care of before the vote.

Uhm, Mister Mayor, we may be rookies at this whole politics game that you guys play so well, but isn’t the point of today’s rally to get the votes you need? Once you have them, isn’t it a bit odd to still be tying up loose ends? This seems kinda odd to me, at least, Mister Mayor. Perhaps you don’t have the support you said you did after all?

    Point the finger at the DC Council. Lets have some leadership here. To say this debate is education vs. stadium is flat out wrong. The stadium funds could not be applied to education. Lets not blow this. Approve the lease.

    Yeah, I’d say it definately sounds like he failed to gather as much corporate welfare support as he claimed.
