DeBonis: Fenty donors put their mouths where their money is in first TV ads

(Cross-posted from DeBonis.)

On Friday, Mayor Adrian Fenty (D) is debuting TV commercials touting his commitment to affordable housing, small business and neighborhood development. Fenty himself appears in none of the ads, leaving unidentified District residents to talk up Fenty's record.

Read the full post and watch the ads at Mike DeBoni's is blog -- here and here.
