Fact of the Day: Washington City

Since Washington D.C. was built as the capital of the United States, it's not part of any U.S. state. Which ironically gives them no representation in either side of Congress. Citizens can still vote for city elections and for president.

I didn't know that. That's kind of odd, but I guess it makes sense.

They have a non-voting representative, which sucks.
