Trump May Lose DC Liquor License For Lack of “Good Character”.

It seems that DC gives citizens the right to challenge the liquor licenses for owners who lack good character.  A group is citing this regulation, arguing that a liquor license owner must be “of good character and generally fit for the responsibilities of licensure” and that Donald Trump does not fit this definition.

The board just refused a Trump request to dismiss a valid challenge.

The board on Wednesday issued an order denying the Trump International Hotel’s motion to dismiss a “protest” from a group consisting of an attorney, two former judges and a handful of religious leaders who assert that Trump is not of “good character” and therefore should not be able to sell alcoholic beverages in Washington.

 

In the documents, the group wrote that it is “focusing on certain lies (Trump) has told, his involvement in relevant fraudulent and other activity demonstrating his lack of integrity, and his refusal to abide by the law or to stop associating with known criminals.”

 

Joshua Levy, an attorney who is representing the group challenging the license renewal, told CNN on Friday that the board’s order is “a solid victory for the rule of law.”
“Despite Trump’s efforts to silence the public and hold himself above the law, the board correctly denied his motion to dismiss and found that the public can ‘protest’ the owner’s character on renewal of their liquor license,” Levy said.
Stranger things have happened but based on the thousands of documented lies Trump has spewed I don’t see how a DC board can rule he is a person “of good character”.

I had hoped the beginning of the end for Trump
was the 2016 Election Day . Let’s hope the end comes soon ….Preferably before the 2020 elections!!!

You know, I was just looking at the photo at the top of the article. He (tRUMP) is really ugly. His whole countenance is ugly. Squinty eyes, ugly down turned mouth, no humor, no grace, nothing but sour apples and a hate filled face. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an uglier photo or an uglier person.
