Resignation Requests Mount For Jack Evans

There are demands for Jack Evans to resign as a DC council member and as a national committee member for the DC Democratic Party.

Half of his fellow DC Council members want Jack Evans to step down following the recent release of an ethics investigation.
Now the head of DC’s Democratic Party has asked Evans to resign as a national committee member.
An investigation, initiated by the DC Council, claims Evans violated council ethics rules by using his office to help his consulting clients who then paid him hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Council Chairman Phil Mendelson said Evans has “obliterated the public trust,” and called the report “damning.” At least six council members called on Evans to step down Tuesday. Evans’ lawyers say Evans did not do anything corrupt. An investigation into Evans’ conduct by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for D.C. is ongoing.
