Hot Mic During Block Party Captures Truth on Conspiracy of Two ANC8A Commissioners
Constituent Files Department of Justice Civil Rights Complaint
Washington, D.C. - On Father’s Day, during a block party that was being live-streamed to Facebook, ANC8A01 Commissioner, began a conversation with a neighbor and small business owner, Tom Donohue where the commissioner had openly admitted to her knowing that ANC8A03 Commissioner, Holly Muhammad does not live where she declared her candidacy for ANC Commissioner and claims she currently lives. In the recording released today, Crawford says, “Listen, I want to talk to you because I’m gonna be honest with you, Holly Muhammad doesn’t live over here” She can also be heard saying “She don’t live over here, she don’t live over here”
Donohue has claimed Muhammad does not live where she says and that fellow ANC8A Commissioner and friend Barbra Clark permitted Holly to use her address early last year to run for the open ANC8A03 seat. “It’s been clear that Holly & Barbra conspired together in order to keep Holly as Commissioner, likely to keep access tight and information secret,” Donohue says, he continues “that makes sense as no one has provided information that I have requested in multiple Freedom of Information Act Requests pertaining to the financials over the last three years, they all have been ignored.”
For years ANC8A under Holly, now Jamila White’s presidency, this commission has ignored and refused to inform the voters of this commission what is really going on. Twice – the Board of Elections has advised the commission to host a special meeting to determine whether a vacancy exists. This advisement was rejected by Chair White saying, “According to the statute included, a meeting is needed if we have determined a vacancy, and we do not have a vacancy.” Additionally, time and time again this commission has prevented Donohue from informing the voters of matters concerning the commission, or even just asking questions.
As a result, Donohue filed a complaint with the DC Board of Ethics & Government Accountability (BEGA) that complaint is currently under investigation. On Monday, June 26, 2023, Donohue filed a complaint with the Department of Justice Civil Rights division claiming his rights were violated when the commission on multiple occasions either refused to allow him to speak, muted him in attempts to silence him, deleted messages sent during a public meeting removing it from the public record and went so far as to declare publicly during an ANC meeting that he was banned.
Donohue said in a written statement that “the voters of ANC8A need representation from elected officials that will follow the law, will respect the rights of their fellow neighbors, and be accountable to the public. That means listening to people. not jam-packing a meeting full of speakers and not providing more than 15 minutes to hear the concerns of their neighbors. ANC8A must hold a hearing and declare ANC8A03 vacant and remove Holly Muhammad from office.”
