She is trying to hold government contractors accountable for all the tax dollars they get paid. It's making some powerful people uncomfortable. The supposed scandal, conducting a poll for an election you're not running in, only happened because we don't have ranked choice voting so she had to figure out which candidate to strategically support.

Did she or did she not commit a pretty deliberate violation of DC’s public campaign finance law? I could care less about Elissa Silverman (could not tell you anything about her competence, political views, or her opponent, feel free to comb through my post history) but reading that article made it seem like a bizarre own goal which undermines her credibility as a trustworthy politician.
