UPDATED | W. Cardell Shelton convicted of EMBEZZELMENT when he was a Ward 5 ANC is now running for ANC in Ward 8.

UPDATE: DCist is reporting that WUSA9 may have goofed up and that "W. Cardell Shelton" may actually be Cardell Shelton, former ANC 8C commissioner who in fact does own that house (which with all due respect can use some tidying up). The Advoc8te will post any updates as soon as they come in. If WUSA9 did make a mistake in causing confusion on who in fact is W. Cardell Shelton and who is running for office --- oh my! 


A HUGE hat tip to a Twitter follower who brought this to my attention! The Advoc8te had assumed the "W. Cardell Shelton" who was running was former ANC 8C Commissioner Cardell Shelton. I had no idea this was actually William C. Shelton, formerly of Ward 5. William C. Shelton pleaded guilty in 2011 to just under $30,000 from the ANC 8B bank account.

The Advoc8te does not issue endorsements but in this case I have no problem issuing an anti-endorsement. If you live in ANC 8C05 please DO NOT VOTE FOR W. CARDELL SHELTON! Our ANC deserves much better! 

Brenda Shields is also running for the 8C05 seat and I have found her to be open, honest, and very competent.

I didn't see any Catania signs in the yard -- I did see Bowser signs in the yard of the house.

I see a Bowser sign which fits in with what she is doing promising everybody something for a vote. But they should know she don't give a damn about nobody but her and Fenty.

DCist says this is not true. Seems if the WUSA reporter would have fact checked or waited for confirmation from Cardell Shelton she would have found out that Cardell Shelton of Upsal Street is the one running for the Ward 8 ANC position and not the former Ward 5 person convicted of stealing. http://dcist.com/2014/11/former_anc_commissioner_convicted_o.php

WUSA has taken the story off of their FB page and says they are investigating the facts to the story.

If this Cardell Shelton is a different person then who is being reported, then why is it that none of the neighbors surrounding his house knows he is running for ANC. Further, Cardell Shelton who use to run in Ward 8 is now 84 years old. Don't be fooled

Something is still just not smelling right....Based on a call to the station, WUSA9 appear to stand behind this broadcasted story as being factual and accurate. In this conversation, there were indications that there may be some sort of ongoing "historical issue" btwn the DCist and WUSA9 w/DCist frequently challenging WUSA9 stories...

yes he is on team Catania. Look at the damn sign on his lawn on Upsal street SE.
