this guy's not about to push up against the 1% because he needs them (like all other politicians) for ad revenue - so he can sell everyone on those empty promises almost all politicians offer up on that road to office. gotta have that shiny video where he's smiling and shaking hands with some old demographically correct person. i would like to see this guy working on a loading dock or in a garage or at the sewage treatment plant and not behind some desk at his communications job before spouting off about being working-class.
So now who should look into the inspectors who previously okay'd the venue w/o proper exits? There's been several cases in the news in recent years w/ fires and blocked/inadequate exits (just look up the band "Great White"). I'm sure they paid their inspection fees and could produce licenses to prove it. This is no way of addressing the issue. This is only a bureaucratic means of not addressing the real issue. I would have more faith in government if they stood their ground and said, "this is a threat to the community and we're closing it until further notice" and not some backdoor work-around. And why hasn't the lot ownership/ease of use been addressed before?
