Fenty purges anti-meter taxi commissioners
Mayor Fenty quashes dissent and looks good doing it. He never forgot that a 4-4 vote last year in the DC Taxi Cab Commission briefly stopped his meter plans, and now he’s settling scores, replacing three of the commissioners who voted against meters.
The move isn’t surprising to anyone knows how rough the Taxi Cab Commission can be. Why do you think Commissioner Leon Swain packs heat?
