D.C. Councilmember Vincent Orange at the 2014 Southeast Mayoral forum at Arena Stage in Washington, DC.

D.C. Council Member Vincent Orange is taking heat for his new gig heading the D.C. Chamber of Commerce. He lost his primary bid for re-election, but for five more months, he’ll advocate for D.C. businesses while sitting on the council. Not only does the D.C. Council have business-related legislation before it, but Councilmember Orange also chairs the Committee on Business, Consumer and Regulatory Affairs –which many say is a blatant conflict of interest. We speak to the Councilmember about his plans and his response to calls for his resignation.
