Re: Charles Maddox

Dear Mayor Williams:

In light of today's ruling, by the Honorable John M. Campbell, holding that the DC Council has standing to sue you for your announced refusal to execute legislation duly enacted by the Council, I hereby request the immediate placement of Inspector General Charles C. Maddox on administrative leave without pay.

This request should be adhered to immediately to protect the integrity of the operations of the DC Office of Inspector General. There are many complex investigations (OPM, credit card fraud, steering of contracts, Hatch Act violations, executive office election fundraising issues, Washington Teachers Union, etc.) being conducted that can be ruled tainted and/or invalid due to the participation of Charles C. Maddox.

I am sure you would agree that the best interests of the District of Columbia and its citizens are paramount to any concerns of placing Mr. Maddox on administrative leave.

Mr. Maddox does not have the authority or force of law to serve as DC Inspector General and it is up to you to ensure that he does not operate under the color of law at this time. 

As Judge Campbell points out " . . . [w]hen the Mayor then refused to execute the legislation's requirements, the legislative act of the Council '[did] not go into effect, 'ibid., resulting in the vote of each Council member who voted for the measure being 'completely nullified,' 'overridden,' and 'deprived of all validity."

Mr. Mayor, its time to protect the interests of the District of Columbia against any potential liability by unlawful actions by Mr. Maddox.

If you have any questions, I can be reached on 202-724-8028.

Very truly yours,
Vincent B. Orange, Sr.
DC Committee on Government on Operations
