Deadbeat Lerners Still Haven’t Paid the Rent

Foul Ball

Okay. See. If you or I did this? We’d be on the street a long time ago. But we’re now six months after the start of the baseball season at brand new Nationals Park, and the Lerner Family still hasn’t paid the team’s rent.

Folks, this is ri-goddamned-diculous.

They owe the city $3.5M for the occupation of the ballpark and they haven’t paid a red cent anywhere. They haven’t even done the courteous thing and put the rent in escrow, near as I can find. Chance are, it’s over something monumentally stupid like Ted Lerner’s chair rocking ever so slightly in his multi-million dollar owner’s suite.

Pay up, Ted. Pay up. You owe this city its due.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
