The battle to land the new headquarters of the FBI has turned ugly, NBC 4 Washington reports [1]

In one case, a Fairfax County official took a swipe at Prince George’s County, saying it’s the place where the FBI would be busy because of criminals.

“I made that comment in the context of talking about why Fairfax County is the most appropriate location for the FBI headquarters, including our safe neighborhoods and decades-long tradition of good government,” Fairfax County Development Association President Gerry Gordon told NBC 4.

“Quite frankly, I was stunned,” Prince George’s County Deputy Chief of Economic Development Aubrey Thagard responded.
