So full of ironies . . .
The Washington Post editorializes like a hand-wringing nanny that budget shortfalls ("crisis") in Fairfax "shouldn't be a political tug of war," now that Connolly's escaped and taken up a new seat in the House.
"Fairfax officials announced last week that the county faces an estimated $650 million shortfall in a $3.4 billion budget for fiscal 2010. The gap, more than $200 million higher than estimates in July, is mostly attributable to plummeting housing values; property assessments have fallen 14 percent since the start of the year."I'm guessing they'll just raise the property tax rate. It's obvious they've got little to lose.
