Ad hoc committee comprised of all DC councilmembers other than Jack Evans voted unanimously to recommend that he be expelled from the DC Council

WASHINGTON, DC – Ward 2 candidate Jordan Grossman released the following statement in response to the unanimous vote of all DC councilmembers other than Jack Evans to recommend that he be expelled from the DC Council:

“The DC Council made a powerful statement today that shameless corruption should be unacceptable in our government. Investigation after investigation has confirmed what has been widely known for years: Jack Evans has been taking hundreds of thousands of dollars from undisclosed paying clients who had business before the DC Council. Ward 2 deserves a clean break from Jack Evans and the corrupt machine that has kept him in power for so long.”

Jordan is a fifth generation DC resident and former Obama Administration, Capitol Hill, and DC government official. He’s running to represent Ward 2 on the DC Council to end corruption, fight for DC statehood, and make it easier for residents to afford a home, find high-quality child care, walk, bike, or take public transit, and pay off student loan debt. Jordan is challenging scandal-plagued incumbent Jack Evans in the Democratic primary in 2020. 

Jordan leads the six candidate Ward 2 field in grassroots fundraising, has been endorsed by Jews United for Justice (JUFJ) Campaign Fund, and received support from 54 percent of DC for Democracy members in their Ward 2 endorsement vote. Jordan does not take money from corporations or political action committees (PACs) and the vast majority of his donors have never contributed to a DC Council campaign before this cycle.
