Council Chair Vincent Gray wants to see the DC City Council adopt a new Code of Conduct, the kind that might prevent this summer’s fracas with Marion Barry’s ex. The bill will be proposed as emergency legislation to get it quickly through the system. I hadn’t realized that the Council rules hadn’t permitted for a censure or reprimand of Councilman Barry, as deserving as he was, simply because there is no reprimand process for members of the council. I suspect that’s on the agenda as well.
I would suggest a rule for the Council to think about:
Any councilperson caught giving no-show grants to people they’re involved with has to do the truffle shuffle in Freedom Plaza with their pants around their ankles while Tom Sherwood and Kojo Nnamdi narrate it for the radio listeners.
