as to why she can't make two picks at the same time. that's a yes we would have toul ask the mayor.yor. she's not addressed that.t. of course we heard about the issues from within the wilsonn building vetting other positioni including people who have beenae at the helm of very importantor departments like the departmente of t of general services, many f people from within her cabinet have resigned in just recentcent days and weeks and she's going on two years. so still a lot of questions as to why she can't fill thesee positions quickly like seen in other major sit cities. marina maracco reporting fromaco the r wilson building. > police in fairfax county are investigating a case of possible road rage.ro a man says another driver targeted him this afternoon t alonhig the beltway. the window of his car was blown out. baby was in the backseat. fox5's lauren demarco was live in vienna with the latest. what happened.wh >>reporter: we spoke with that
