Some people seem to live charmed lives: No matter what they do, they survive. Here is one such person , the former mayor of Washington DC, current council member and felon with a history of drug use and now, failure to pay taxes. Yet, he continues to get elected. What is it that the people of the District allow him one by after another? It would make an interesting PR case study to examine his positioning and campaigning. What does he say and do that the people continue to trust him? How has he maintained a core of supporters for decades? It would be instructive to know.
