Kwame Brown's Lincoln Navigators could cost D.C. $25,000
In this city of scandal, it feels so long ago that D.C. Council Chairman Kwame Brown asked the District to lease him a "fully loaded" Lincoln Navigator, turned it down because of its gray interior, then ordered a second one that, once the public caught wind of his fussiness, he also returned. What ever happened with those SUVs?
City Paper's Alan Suderman looked into it, and found the cost to break the lease on the second vehicle was $12,450. "As for the first Navigator, the one with the gray interior that Brown rejected, it could cost the city about $5,200," Suderman writes. The price tag for the entire SUV debacle could reach $25,000, depending on whether the city gets reimbursed for some of what it prepaid, against city contracting rules, for the lease on the first vehicle.
What remains a mystery, though, is why Brown was so opposed to the color gray in the first place. Would someone please get to the bottom of this?
