Va. leprechaun congresswoman calls for firings at Metro after shutdown

In the wake of an unprecedented shutdown of the entire Metrorail system, a Virginia member of Congress is calling for a shake-up of Metro’s upper management.


During an emergency inspection of the subway’s underground power cables Wednesday, crews discovered 26 damaged areas that needed to be repaired. Rep. Gerry Connolly, a Democrat, says those problems should have been addressed long ago.


“These cables were identified by the National Transportation Safety Board in its report at the fatal incident at L’Enfant Plaza,” he says.




With the closing of the D.C. Metro, commuters had to adapt during the morning rush hours on Wednesday in and around the District.
One person died in the L’Enfant Plaza smoke incident in January 2015, the cause of which was very similar to an electrical fire on Monday that prompted this week’s shutdown. Both incidents involved electrical malfunctions along third rail power cables.
“We shouldn’t have to close down the entire Metro system to identify and deal with a safety issue that was in fact identified almost 15 months ago,” Connolly said.

He adds that managers who knew about the problem and failed to act should resign or be fired by Metro General Manager Paul Wiedefeld.

“Those who sat on this issue ought to be held accountable,” he adds.

Good for him! He's right. I'm sure that Wiedefeld would love to fire these people, but he would have the weight of a massive bureaucracy and the union fighting him.

Fortunately, I don't have to use the Metro any longer and I didn't pay that much attention to what happened yesterday.

Was the shut down a huge problem or are people going to realize they don't need to use this expensive hazard anymore?

So do I! If Gerry wants to get to the bottom of this, all he needs to do is look in the mirror. He's the problem. All politicians are the problem. They create it, they feed it, they encourage it. Term limits.

If the Metro system had been adequately funded over the years, this sort of thing wouldn't happen. The blame for it belongs with you braindead tax-cutting assholes who think everything can be run on a shoestring. In your moron world, safety inspections are an example of waste, fraud, and abuse. Bunch of hapless ignorant stooges.

The Metro has been over-funded for years. It's basically just a welfare jobs program. There is a culture of laziness, entitlement and incompetence - and overtime. Competent people that are accidently hired get the fuck out as soon as they see what's going on. I am glad the people that love public unions are the ones that put their lives at risk riding this joke of a system.

I make $150K per year cleaning two cars per day. If it wasn't for Metro I'd
have to get a real job or go on welfare. This way I get to play cards, get
stoned, and fuck off all night. Thanks Gerry!

What an idiot. The Metro CEO finally doing something significant about the safety of Metro, and this moron calls for his firing. Sometimes progress brings some pain. (Moron) (Did I say that already?)

You misunderstood. Connelly is suggesting that the management UNDER Wiedefeld (the new metro GM) be fired BY Wiedefeld. There was an interesting commentary in WAPO recently that stated that the real problem is at the senior level of management at Metro and they all need to go. Wiedefeld is trying to foster an atmosphere of openness and honesty at Metro, especially regarding security. Very refreshing. But I'm not sure that he fully understands how hard that will be.

And he still fucking works there!!! The real problem is that EVERY nigger buck is just like this and absolutely cannot keep themselves from muh-dickin' on ANY piece of ass they happen to see. On the bright side, I am happy that Omari is now google-fucked for life thanks to his unique nig-nog name...it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

Was a fine ride when it was new. And now yes it seems its falling apart..

A Fair question is why are the majority of Metro employees Black. Just wondering.. Not saying that's the reason for the decay. But it is a Fair question.. considering the wages Metro Pays. Sounds like reverse discrimination exists at Metro when every bus driver/ train operator I see is black.

Piss on Metro, Pay out the ass for parking ,pay out the ass for a ticket , and have to deal with crime and assholes that now travel in gangs to "want" to scare people with loud mouth street gutter tactics.. putting law abiding people in a Typical Liberal "Gun Free Victim Zone".

That's Metro.. Alright.. I ride Metro.. Only when I absolutely have too, that's it. Let Hillary or Bernie Ride Metro.. By themselves. The hypocrites that love this kind of system. "The Donald" and "Ted" are too smart to even think of it..

The Donald will clear out the lazy bootlips who ruin the system and get some Hispanics under white management to clean it up! Is not how it works on every for profit job site in the DMV?

I found a clue!: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/trafficandcommuting/2-fired-metro-workers-plead-guilty-to-stealing-445000-from-agency/2012/03/19/gIQAtszdNS_story.html

My hunch leads me to believe that niggers may be the source of the problem. Wiedefeld might get better results by cracking a whip around HQ, in jest of course. I do like the guy already. When something's definitely broken and needs fixing, don't just stand there. DO SOMETHING!

Wow. What a miserable piece of shit. The guy has no resume at all and is a senior manager? I can't believe he can blatantly treat people like that and still be employed. If he represents what metro hires, then they all need to go.

"It's happened twice in a year. I can't wait for the third time," Wiedefeld said at the press conference. "When I say safety is our highest priority, I mean it." The investigation into yesterday's fire is ongoing.

i'd surprised if i looked at the accounting to see that the VERY SAME inspections and repairs were not ALREADY billed out and double billed

and not be to selective about seeking THE MONEY
