(Washington, DC) — A D.C. Council committee will hold another hearing today on its investigation into Ward 2 Council member Jack Evans.

The Ad Hoc Committee is expected to hear from investigators looking into alleged ethical lapses by Evans over the past five years. The Board of Elections has 30 days to certify the petition by validating at least 10-percent of the signatures. The Committee to Hold Jack Evans Accountable is scheduled to meet at 12:30 this afternoon at the Wilson Building.
