WASHINGTON (AP) — A D.C. schools employee has been fined $1,500 for using her dead grandmother's handicapped-parking placard to park for free at work.
A D.C. Public Schools employee who works with disabled students was fined $1,500 Thursday for using a handicapped-parking placard that belonged to her dead grandmother in order to park for free at work.
Sure he may have bigger fish to fry, but former D.C. Council member Michael A. Brown is now facing possible discipline from two D.C. agencies for failure to file campaign finance and financial disclosure forms, according to officials.
Former D.C. Attorney General Robert Spagnoletti told a D.C. Council committee on Monday he can be an effective member of the newly created ethics board - despite what his critics may say - and that his ties to city government are unlikely to force his recusal from many cases.
D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray on Tuesday named three attorneys to serve on the newly created D.C. Board of Ethics and Government Accountability, which emerged as part of legislative reforms intended to restore faith in city hall after a year of scandals and ongoing criminal probes by the U.S. Attorney's Office.
