Fresh off a legislative victory for the billboard industry at Nationals Park, Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans’ attempt to preserve a loophole for digital sign companies doing business in the District seemed inevitable—especially given his close ties with the vendor that stands to benefit the most.

Evans recently introduced an emergency bill that would provide a permit exemption in certain cases—a boon for Digi Media Communications LLC, which already has installed numerous signs in violation of city rules and is looking to install dozens more throughout the District.

[SNIP] Fresh off a legislative victory for the billboard industry at Nationals Park, Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans’ attempt to preserve a loophole for digital sign companies doing business in the District seemed inevitable—especially given his close ties with the vendor that stands to benefit the most.

Evans recently introduced an emergency bill that would provide a permit exemption in certain cases—a boon for Digi Media Communications LLC, which already has installed numerous signs in violation of city rules and is looking to install dozens more throughout the District.

Loose Lips finds it telling that Evans and Digi Media CEO Don MacCord attended a Nantucket fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in August, and that both of their names, along with a number of other Digi Media executives and investors, appear on a list of contributions that Evans bundled so that he could attend the $50,000-a-head event. The list, dated Sept. 26 under Evans’ name and home address, shows 20 checks totaling $52,300—many of them also coming from developers with ties to Mayor Muriel Bowser.

Alleged crimes seem to have links running from DC to Nantucket.

Will a financial crime trip up the Clinton machine?

These are enormous LED signs on the outer wall of large buildings. . . bright enough to blind you while driving by them.

We’re talking about 40 feet by 25 feet in the case of the baseball stadium, and there are condos right across the street. These type of signs are a menace to society.

There’s one in Chinatown (old Verizon Center area) that is awfully bright at night.

I suspect there is one setting for daytime brightness in the full sun, and it’s not adjusted for night time. I hate driving by them at night.
