This is a very sad turn of events. There are many stories of people getting help from Jack Evans because they knew him but I have never heard a story about someone not getting his help because he didnt know them. I think he was there for everyone regardless. Nor has anyone criticized him for supporting lousy projects or initiatives that hurt Ward 2 for his own benefit.

It seems that he is being accused of crossing a line that is porous and crossed every day. We have millionaire Members of Congress, whose spouses run consulting companies. The splash and spillage of the Government trough seems limitless.

Jack Evans is a good lawyer and I hope people who have
looked up to him for years have his back and support him now.

Intent is everything and it is hard to imagine Jack Evans intentionally doing something he knew was wrong. The DC Council should have allowed him to make amends. I for one am grateful for his service.
