DC Dem Primary – Muriel wins; Gray’s out

Washington, DC held its Democratic primary on Tuesday and current mayor Vincent Gray’s ethics scandal finally torpedoed him. Muriel won the primary by 12 percentage points, an absolutely crushing margin. Quoting Muriel:

“The residents of the nation’s capital have always elected a Democratic mayor, a Democratic president, and in big numbers, and we’re going to do it again in November,” she said to supporters gathered at a charter school in southeast Washington.

Yeah, they have. And look what it’s gotten them. One corrupt administration after another, one bunch of cronies lining their own pockets at the expense of the residents of DC after yet another. Hey, DC – open your eyes. They’re using you, they’re taking you for granted and what do you have to show for it? High crime, restricted liberties, poor schools, bad infrastructure. Perhaps you should take a moment and do what people like Muriel and her Party bosses are completely convinced you won’t do: give some real consideration to alternatives.

Either way… good luck.
