- Birthday Shot
Today’s birthday shot goes out to my good friend Teri Galvez (@TeriGalvezDC), who just ran a very honest and spirited race for DC GOP National Committeewoman. Unfortunately, she came up a little short – 234 votes short. But she’s the shit! I am going to start a Draft Teri for DC GOP Chair. Of course, she’s going to kill me for doing so, but she will be amazing!

They ought to go, I’ll just say that right now, you know. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.” Ward 8 get what it deserves for voting him back in.
