Jack Evans Target of DC Council Investigation

(Washington, DC) — The DC Council will launch an investigation into councilmember Jack Evans. DC Council Chairman Phil Mendelson announced today he would remove Evans as Chairman of the Committee on Finance and Revenue and will appoint a committee to investigate Evans’ alleged ethics violations. This comes after the FBI searched Evans’ home this morning. Yesterday, a confidential memo was released saying Evans used his position as chairman of the Metro board to help a company that was secretly paying him 50-thousand dollars per year.
