“In just four days, Ward 2 Council candidate Jordan Grossman has taken in enough donations to qualify for D.C.’s new public campaign financing program, according to his campaign.
Grossman, 33, believes the influx of cash is evidence of growing dissatisfaction with the scandal-laden Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans.
Evans is currently the target of a federal investigation into his private business dealings. The D.C. Council reprimanded Evans and stripped his Committee on Finance and Revenue of some responsibilities after the Washington Post uncovered business pitches Evans sent to firms that lobby the D.C. government from his Council email address. In the pitches, Evans touted his business connections and political influence in an attempt to gain private employment.”
