  • “Fenty Wins 13 of 15 Voter Precincts with High Concentrations of LGBT Residents”

    Or, in what’s *actually* displayed in your infographic, 11 out of 14.

    14 – Dupont Circle
    15 – Dupont Circle
    16 – Logan Circle
    17 – Logan Circle
    22 – U St/NW Cor.
    23 – Columbia Heights
    24 – Adams Morgan
    25 – Adams Morgan
    36 – Columbia Heights
    89 – Capitol Hill
    90 – Capitol Hill

    18 – Shaw
    112 – Anacostia
    127 – SW Waterfront

    Maybe if that missing 15th precinct is added it could at least be amended to 12 of 15?

  • I don’t think this is a surprise to anyone educated voter out there.

  • I have to wonder if this includes the African-American and Latino populations in these areas. Given what I already know, I find it hard to believe that Fenty’s numbers were still that high. Broaden your scope and watch the numbers fall.
