Fairfax's "Hit & Run" Connolly's Subsidized Housing Motivations Revealed

Steve of ThoughtsOnline points to a WP article about a subsidized housing pow-wow "Hit & Run" Connolly attended. Steve provides this on-the-money insight:

And of course, they lament the fact that County employees can't all afford to live in the County. See, they're not really upset over the private sector workers who drive in from neighboring jurisdictions. They're more concerned with getting reelected - all the thousands of county workers who live outside the county and thus can't vote for the likes of Connolly in Fairfax County elections. They want to throw these County employees some more money - through either subsidies or loans - in order to build up their political support base.
