An economic development director at Amazon.com Inc. isn't happy about a Washington Post report that the e-commerce giant is in advanced talks with a Washington suburb about being the location for its second headquarters.
He criticized the leaker who allegedly tipped off The Washington Post that Northern Virginia is the likely victor of Amazon's second headquarters competition in a highly unorthodox public rebuke.
Amazon, based in Seattle, is apparently seriously considering an area known as Crystal City.
People close to the process told The Post the talks were more in-depth than they had been with other locations.
Crystal City is served by a mass transit system and major highways, both qualifications that Amazon has said is required for its new headquarters as well. "And stop treating the NDA you signed like a used napkin", he said, referring to the nondisclosure agreements that Amazon required its finalists to sign.

Of the Manchester clubs, six City players hit 1,000 over the first 10 games in comparison to United's four. And if you are not a solid team you can not have very important targets.
Amazon is expected to make its decision before the end of the year.
In other tweets, Grella took aim at a report that linked the possible second headquarters to where CEO Jeff Bezos' plane travels.
The retail giant announced previous year that it was looking to open a second headquarters somewhere in the United States, a move that could bring with it as many as 50,000 new jobs.
Spokesmen for Amazon declined to comment to the newspaper, as did Arlington County Board Chair Katie Cristol.
It is understood that the area's premier developer, JBG Smith, has pulled some of its buildings off the leasing market to make way for Amazon. HYM Investment Group's founder Thomas O' Brien told the Herald last month that plans to redevelop the site will proceed, regardless of Amazon's decision.
