DC Mayor Marion Barry last night ended a $48M plan to lease two office buildings for use by city workers displaced by construction of a planned downtown arena, according to the WASHINGTON POST. Barry, who was to lease the buildings from developer R. Donahue Peebles, a long-time friend and political supporter, blamed "political chicanery" (Loeb & Schneider, WASHINGTON POST, 9/8).
