It took a while, but the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office finally made an honest man out of Sulaimon Brown. This summer, Vince Gray campaign aides Thomas Gore and Howard Brooks pleaded guilty to trying to conceal from the feds that Brown’s story of being paid by the Gray campaign in order to stay in the 2010 mayoral race and bash Adrian Fenty was true. But Brown’s bigger contribution is that he opened the door into the shady world of D.C. campaign finances, behind which the feds found what they say was an illegal “shadow campaign” funded by one of the city’s biggest contractors. We still don’t know if Brown will ultimately bring down the mayor he was once secretly paid to help get elected, but his stamp on District politics is already undeniable.

Our Readers Say

Sulaimon Brown was 2011 man of the year,now he's 2012 man of the year, and it looks like he will be 2013 future man of the year when Vince Gray gets ushered off to prison.
