Sulaimania!

Sulaimon Brown Testifies at D.C. Council

Sulaimania has started, and it's already awesome.

So far, Sulaimon Brown has repeatedly butted heads with committee chairwoman Mary Cheh by refusing her request to take his sunglasses off, and repeatedly telling her not to interrupt him.

Next up was Councilmember David Catania, who got in a near shouting match over Brown's contention that Catania is a "witness" in this whole mess (aren't we all?). Cue gaveling from Cheh and Catania and Brown calling each other "delusional."

Things have settled down somewhat, for now.

As for Brown's actual testimony, LL hasn't heard any news yet, though Brown is insisting on labeling each document he brings up "exhibit one" or "exhibit two." ("You can label them whatever you want," Cheh told him.) Stay tuned.

    While Sulaimon is most likely a whack job crook and there probably was dirty play by Gray's mayoral campaign, what annoys me about this article is David Catania's comment that "he has 2 jobs."

    Get over yourself David. You are a big fat ugly pig, u always have been, and u always will be. The hearing was about campaign corruption, not about you being a double dipping hog at the trough. Oink Oink Oink !

    SEKen, picking up on slurs online hunh? Interesting logic.

    Ironically, it's the same logic used by those who decided it was "funny" to e-mail photos of watermelons on the white house's lawn.

  • Southeast Ken

    @SEis4ME, I love watermelon. I just don't eat pig's feet. What's your point? You need to lighten up and enjoy life by having a sense of humor. Stop taking life too serious.

  • SweetPeachDC

    @SEKen, when do you sleep? I imagine with all this "excitement" it's hard for anyone to do anything but comment. On to my comment...LOL

    The Gray Administration is an embarrassment. While the alleged actions taken during the campaign are unethical, they are not illegal. What is illegal is lying to investigators and the FBI. The actions taken by Gray and his friends to cover up their conduct is CRIMINAL. I hope each and every person involved is charged. Maybe then we can get our elected officials to focus and work on behalf of residents. Kudos to SB for putting Barry in his place. I'm surprised MB wasn't struck down by lightening as soon as he uttered "integrity".

    @WARD4NDC-NEVER REGRET VOTING FOR AN INDIVIDUAL THAT YOU DEEMED FIT TO DO THE JOB. YOU CAN BE DISAPPOINTED IN SOME OF THE ACTIONS THAT OCCURRED BUT STAND BY YOUR VOTE.

    THE ISSUES MAYOR GRAY IS FACING IS DUE LARGELY TO THE FACT THAT HE OPENED UP THE GOV’T. IN THIS MEDIA CRAZED WORLD ESPECIALLY THE LOCAL MEDIA WHO WAS SO STARVED FOR INFO FROM THE PREVIOUS ADMIN THEY DIDN’T KNOW HOW TO ACT WHEN ACCESS WAS GRANTED.

    HAVING TRUST IN THE FOLKS YOU SURROUND YOURSELF WITH AND HAVE SOME OF THOSE FOLK BETRAY YOUR TRUST MAKES FOR SOUFFLE NEWS. A WHOLE LOT OF FLUFF THAT IF SERVED ALONE YOU WILL NOT GET FULL BUT IF CONSTANTLY FORCE FED SAME THING YOU WILL. THUS THE TITLE OF THIS PIECE BY MR. SEWERMAN.

    AS STATED BEFORE I WOULD RATHER HAVE THIS HAPPEN SIX MONTHS IN THAN TO HAVE THIS COME OUT SIX MONTHS BEFORE REELECTION.

    ********************************************************
    @ hymesb – THE FIRST STEP IS ADMITTING TO YOURSELF THAT YOU HAVE A PROBLEM BEFORE ANYONE CAN HELP YOU. MERRIAM WEBSTER GAVE ME A LIL’ HELP TO ASSIST YOU DOWN THE ROAD TO RECOVERY. TO BE IN DENIAL: REFUSING TO ADMIT THE TRUTH OR REALITY OF SOMETHING UNPLEASENT.

    FAGGIE FENTY WAS A HORRIBLE MAYOR. THAT IS WHY HE GOT FIRED. YOU CAN LAY BLAME ON FIRE TRUCKS AND BASEBALL TIX ALL YOU WANT.THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS HE WAS RUNNING A MULTI BILLION DOLLAR CORP LIKE IT WAS HIS PARENTS SHOE STORE.

    *********************************************************
    GAYTANIA NEEDS TO GO! DOES HIS OTHER EMPLOYER DO BUSINESS WITH DC GOVT? IF SO WHERE IS SEWERMAN ON THIS? WHY ISNT THIS JOKER BEING LOOKED AT. THIS COCKSUCKER VIOLATED ALL OF THE CITIZENS OF W.D.C. WITH THAT GAY FREEDOM BILL HE BACKDOORED. HE HAS CONSTANTLY AND CONSISTANTLY SHOWED HIS BIAS WHILE A MEMBER OF THE COUNCIL. HE IS ACTING WITHOUT IMPUNITY. WHY IS THIS MUTHA FUCKA EXEMPT?

    SOMEONE HELP ME UNDERSTAND BECAUSE IM AT A LOST. THE WAY THE MEDIA IS HARPING ON THIS GRAY SHIT IS EQUIVALENT TO A SORRY ASS BASKETBALL PLAYER TRYING TO HIT A THREE POINT SHOT TO BE A HERO. WHEN ALL HE HAS TO DO IS MAKE A LAYUP WITH THE GAYTANIA INVESTIGATION!

    **********************************************************
    I THINK SILLYMON SHOULD SHOW UP WITH THE ELTON JOHN SHADES ON WITH THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS AND EVERYTIME THEY ASK HIM A QUESTION HE SHOULD SAY “I GOT MY STUNNA SHADES ON SO I CAN SEE THROUGH THIS SHIT STORM”

    @ Southeast Ken, you are so funny and you speak the truth!

    Sullyman is crazy but Vince "Skeletor" Gray and his crew are a hot ghetto axx mess!

    All of this darkness is coming to light.

    CM Yvette Pig Feet or Ms Piggy Alexander needs to go!
    I will continue to call her these nice names. It is better than calling her a liar, theif, cheat and dumb axx fool.

    I see old boy Harry "Playboy Bamma Thomas will be the first causality of this drama. I thought CM Yvette "Pig Feet" Alexander was going to be first. Oh wait do not forget about CM Mike "Big Bird- Different Watch Wearing" Brown....you are done in the next election. You all are sell outs.

  • ToiletLawmakers

    CATANIA THE DIRTY-SEWER-GUT-FILLED SLUT! How dare you jeer the unemployed because he is unemployed? You have disrespected all of the unemployed residing in the District and elsewhere for that matter.

    You phony lawmaker (this goes for Cheh-Man-Dude-Guy, Barry-Crack-Give-It-To-Me-Now, Evans-Dingbat, Thomas-Play-Thug, BOTH Browns or Twins Coonery , Alex-mad-fatter-with-a-blonde-animal-sitting-atop-my-head, Graham-give-me-a-thug-like-Eddie-Long, Mendelson-crybaby-for-big-businesses, Orange-peel-face-yes-I'm-back-in-the-game-to-do-nothing, Wells-slur-speech-can-you-understand-my-prejudices and Bowser-innocent-bystander-keep-me-out-the-fray-you-ghetto-idiots)!

    You all came for Sulaimon but didn't know he was coming for you rakes. Time again, the robe of humiliation you attempted to cover him with was simply draped over your shaky shoulders instead. You have the audacity to try to cover for lumpy face Gray when indeed you know he committed wrong on top of wrong. This makes you no better. In fact, it makes you worse.

    All of you jokesters have lost the respect of many. And while I believed that Catania was once the sharpest on the council, it took those few words you uttered to make me know that you are indeed crap and are not worthy to be part of our government. Dude, get out of town! Golden showers for all of you right in the kisser! You guys are such cesspools, trust me, you will like the warm sensation.

    Cheh should have shut the mother down the minute that arrogant idiot refused to remove his sunglasses. After that, he was in complete control and running the show. If this whole situation wasn't such a pathetic state of affairs, it would be funny as hell. But it ain't.

  • Really?

    @Tony....you said nothing but the truth!

  • SEis4ME

    SEKen/MadWard7, despite the number of personal attacks you launch against Alexander, you are doing your beloved Ward 7 residents no favors here. In fact, it makes you look just as bad and "typical" for EOTR residents.

  • MadWard7Resident

    @SEis4ME....Whatever! Free speech baby!

    You must be a fan of CM Alexander. Help youself...you are alone with your feelings.

    Ward 7 need better representation. Her and her neighbors:
    Vince Gray and Kwame Brown all need to go. You can say what you want but they are an embarrassment to Ward 7 and Washington, DC as a whole!

    When you see her at the next fan club meeting:

    1. Ask her where is the money for the people in Ward 7?

    2. Why did she throw her community under the bus with redistricting?

    3. Why she and her staffers never answer emails or return
    calls?

    4. Why she support other council members when she is dead wrong?

    5. Why she lie at meetings and then try to cover it up with another lie?

    6. Why she supports or favors Penn Branch and Hillcrest over other parts of Ward 7?

    7. Why she can not pay a telephone bill?

    8. Why she tweet more than answering an email?

    9. Why she always serve "Pig Feet" at her community dinners....Sike....my bag!

    10. Stop the community dinners...the food is nasty anyway!

    One way to get things done is contact the FBI Public Corruption division and report your concerns. They are aware DC is corrupt. At least no one would get preferential treatment and use their friends to get out of things.
