Fenty Skips Abe Pollin Funeral to Attends Wizards Game

WTOP Radio reports that Adrian Fenty skipped the funeral of Abe Pollin to attend the Wizards game in Miami:

When Washington Wizards Owner Abe Pollin was laid to rest two weeks ago, D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty was noticeably absent from the services. WTOP has learned Fenty opted to attend a Wizards basketball game in Miami…

…At a dedication of an affordable housing complex the Pollin family is building in Ward 7, Fenty offered his condolences to Pollin’s family and friends.

“There are not enough words nor actions that we can say or do to ever really commemorate this man’s life the way it deserves.”

After the dedication, WTOP asked the mayor why he did not attend the funeral.

“I was out of town,” Fenty said. “I was with my family.”

When asked if he went to the Wizards game rather than the funeral, he declined comment repeatedly.
