The D.C. Council on Monday is set to consider a bill that would schedule an election for D.C. attorney general in November — likely the last chance to put the issue before voters for four years.
D.C. residents will not be able to vote for the city's first elected attorney general in the April 1 primary following a decision Friday by a D.C. Superior Court judge.
A D.C. Superior Court judge will hear arguments Thursday from the city's sole candidate for attorney general, who is seeking to keep the election on the April 1 primary ballot despite lawmakers' decision to delay it.
Activists hoping to ban direct corporate contributions to D.C. political campaigns are no longer trying to put their issue before voters in November so they can focus on preserving thousands of petition signatures they gathered earlier this year and make the ballot in a special election next spring.
D.C. activist Bryan Weaver said he was surprised to find his name missing from a master list of voters that the D.C. Board of Elections considers to be valid signers of a petition that may lead to a ban on direct corporate contributions to the city’s political campaigns.
Judge Laura A. Cordero denied Mr. Zukerberg's motion for a preliminary injunction in the case, in which he sought to block a law adopted by the D.C. Council that delayed the election from 2014 until 2018.
Judge Cordero wrote that Mr. Zukerberg failed to prove he would suffer "irreparable harm" as a result of the delay.
