Dingy To DC’s Dem Mayor: “I’m On Your Side, Don’t Screw It Up”… UPDATE: Now With Video
Via Washington Times:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid wants the District of Columbia to know he’s not looking to make things hard for the heavily Democratic city during the government shutdown.
So on Wednesday, he told its mayor not to “screw” things up. The impromptu exchange was captured by TV cameras.
The D.C. local government is often caught up as collateral damage when the federal government shuts down, a constant source of frustration for city officials.
On Wednesday, Mayor Vincent C. Gray sidled up to the Nevada Democrat — who was holding news conference with Senate Democrats — after his own presser on Capitol Hill.
Mr. Reid told the mayor, “I’m on your side, don’t screw it up,” according to multiple Twitter messages from reporters on the scene.
