If you live either outside of Anacostia DC or Washington DC,you probably don't know about this story.

DC Mayor Adrian Fenty is hogging tickets to the professional baseball team Washington Nationals that was supposed to be given to DC Council members.

DC Mayor Adrian Fenty tried to give some of the tickets to some of the council members who he likes. But in a show of unity,all of them refused to accept the tickets.

Council member Vincent Gray (D) said that he was supposed to get 19 tickets for the Washington Nationals home opener. Heck can I just get one ticket? I have never been to a baseball game before. (Little MeMe information?) Anyway what I didn't know that DC Mayor Adrian Fenty hogged tickets last year as well until Attorney General Peter Nickles had to get involved and deliver the tickets to the DC council. But once again DC Mayor Fenty is not giving up the tickets.

So what do you all think? Do you think DC Mayor Adrian Fenty is wrong for hogging the tickets? And if he is not going to give the tickets to DC Council members,what do you think he should do with the tickets? I want you all to tell me what you think about DC Mayor Adrian Fenty hogging Washington Nationals Tickets.  Listen to what DC Mayor Adrian Fenty had to say when he was on Fox 5 News Fenty on FOX 4/16/09

Lanre, shame on Adrian!  But something tells me there is more to this story.  And if Peter Nickles gets involved, I'll side with Fenty.  I bet they are really good tickets, too!

Pat-That's why I want to know why he is hogging the tickets because it definitely has to be more to the story. I like Mayor Adrian Fenty. As far as those tickets being good tickets,I am sure they are. Thanks for your response pat. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

My Question is: Did he PAY for the tickets out of his own pocket?  If so - then he can do what he pleases.  However; something tells me no...

Hi Lanre, I'm thinking these tickets were not paid for by the mayor personally.  I haven't heard about it.  Why haven't you ever been to a baseball game?  Are the games usually sold out?
