Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) says ideally he'd like the Mark Center project in Northern Virginia delayed for three years.
The Pentagon's moves are expected to cause massive traffic jams on I-395, since the Mark Center has no access to public transit. Given the admission of error, some local politicians want to try to sue the Pentagon for an injunction to block the moves from taking place.
But Prince William Chairman Corey Stewart says no way. He says anyone who favors a lawsuit is grasping at straws.
"There's nothing that can be done at this point," Stewart says. "They know it damn well."
Fairfax County Chairman Sharon Bulova, sees it differently. She's not sure about a lawsuit, but she says the Inspector General report could prompt the Pentagon to help pay for more traffic fixes.
"What the report does," she says, "is to give us, I think, some very good ammunition for going back to the federal government, going back to the Department of Defense and saying, 'You need to help us out here.'"
Both Bulova and Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille say a lawsuit against the Pentagon is on the table.
