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.

    I am watching this fool (Sulaimon Brown) on television from my office. I really dislike David Catania. He's one vicious racist white gay male. However, I really dislike all the members of the DC Council.

  2. #2

    Where did Marion Barry learn to speak English? I can't understand a darn thing he's saying. LOL

  3. #3

    Sulaimon Brown seems ready for his role in Men in Black III.

  4. #4

    WOW...Stephanie "UnMade Bed" Reich was the go-between for Sulaimon Brown and Vince Gray and Lorraine Green saying that "Talking to Her Was Like Talking to Vince Gray".

    People should listen and pay close attention to that statement that Lorraine Green has stated. She spoke for Vince Gray then and she speaks for him NOW!!!

    Aren't we lucky to live in a city with such drama?

    Unless the streaming has now crashed, the bathroom break has run over 10 minutes.

    @R Starship.....thank you for giving me my laugh for the day.

    What Happened! Did Mr. Brown fall in?

  10. #10

    He makes it really hard to take him serious with those shades on inside a building... or even outside honestly.

  11. #11

    That was a long bathroom break. LOL

    Ward 4 DC Councilwoman Muriel Bowser is coming for Sulaimon currently at the live hearing on Cable Channel 13. Bowser was a big Fenty supporter and she campaigned for him.

  12. #12

    Now my Ward 7 DC Councilwoman Pig Feet Yvette Alexander is now speaking at the hearing. What's up with the blond hair? Is it true, blonds have more fun? LOL LOL Alexander just broke bad with Sulaimon by stating, she would not ask him any question wearing sun glasses. LOL

    Yvette Alexander is the absolute worst "thing" on the dias! The council is a pack of toothless wolves and they all need to go!

    I couldn't get pass Piggy's blond "wig" matching her jacket - talk about a washout!

  15. #15

    Ok Alan, initially I was gonna get you for photoshopping but GEEZ! I mean really, did we need any other evidence of how much of a nutcase Brown is? This is a circus I wish could have been handled in a much different and less expensive way. Sunglasses! OMG!

    SouthKen: DUDE! What is your issue with Alexander and pig feet? Geez!

  16. #16

    It's possible that he insists on wearing those shades to conceal his eyes. He said he watches "Judge Judy", (as I do as well, :)), and JJ is a proponent of admonishing litigants to look at her. Not everyone can lie with a straight face.

  17. #17

    As a DC resident and a native Washingtonian, I too am disgusted by this circus. I regret voting for Vincent Gray, but I disliked former DC Mayor Adrian M. Fenty. Sulaimon Brown appear to be a vindictive individual. However, I'm disgusted with the entire 13 member Council of the District of Columbia. Politics and politicians are so dam corrupt. Whom can you put your faith in? It dam sure isn't politicians. This is why the majority of the U.S. citizens in DC and the country don't vote. Voters have lost faith and hope in these corrupt clowns.

  18. #18

    I've been told, Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith is at the hearing to offer their fellow 'Man In Black' support. LOL Why is this idiot (Sulaimon Brown) wearing dark sun glasses? He also looks like a funeral director wearing the dark sun glasses. Who are the people sitting in the audience behind Brown? Are they there to testify at the hearing?

  19. #19

    @SEis4ME; her fat ass shouldn't be eathing pig's feet because it's not healthy. High blood pressure is rapid in black America.

  20. #20

    I have high blood pressure and I don't eat pig's feet or pork.

    #21

    Talking about "don't F-it up" that is the most quotable phrase of the day.

    Doesn't drugs dialate the pupils? Check the water bottle, there's something of alcoholic nature in that bottle. I can guarantee it.

    Why am I waiting for RuPaul to come out in drag and say "you better make it work."

    Okay, everyone is now looking through the city directory on-line, name searching a "Bernice."

    #22

    Three men at the urinal; Barry, Sherwood and Brown, now you may infer what you like. Stop laughing you know it is true.

  23. #23

    Adding the two men seated behind Brown wearing shades and me might have the Blues Brothers or 3 Blind Mice.

  24. #24

    This is quite literally the greatest thing I've ever read. Your masterful use of prose has me rolling around my office laughing my face off. He is the Charlie Sheen of DC politics.

  25. #25

    So the telecommunications (online stream and tv broadcast) conveniently crashed during Cherita Whiting's testimony?

  26. #26

    Mr. Brown is a complete fool, period. This negro admitted that he sold his soul for a few dollars. And, then he had the nerve to appear before the D.C. Council in sunglasses apparently as a means of showing his disrespect for the body. Yet, he wants to be taken seriously. Give me a fucking break!

  27. What the flocka?
    #27

    As we are looking at this in my federal office, people are saying why is Kimora Lee new husband in the back ground with a Fenty hat on his head? OMG, LWT (laughing with tears)

    No way this dude is sober.

  29. #29

    @SEKen, salt and butter aren't healthy either. Why keep harping on the fact that she eats what is sold in stores already?

    I actually think you keep going there because of her race and what she chooses to eat. Like black people = like watermelon.

    Anyway, it just reads silly. I L O V E watermelon. It's my fav fruit. Wanna start the black folk need not eat watermelon snipes as you have done w/Alexander?

  30. #30

    When's Harry "getting ready to release those records" Thomas gonna ask some questions? What a scene that would be!

  31. #31

    SEis4ME, are you on drugs fool? I am a black man, so why would I be making fun of her race? Please go back on you meds. My wife and I don't use salt preparing our food. I Can't Believe It's Butter Light with Olive Oil, is what we use in our house hold.

  32. #32

    Yes, Harry Thomas need to go too. Now, another Congressman (Anthony Weiner) lied about photos he sent. Politicians are liars and crooks. Congressman Weiner probably was looking to get his freak on like Bill Clinton and others.

  33. #33

    @Southeast Ken, most men have a promiscuou­s nature, and they express it, if married, through porn and fantasy. Let's get real. So, Congressman Weiner did it on twitter and facebook in fantasy with pics-a bit much and dumb for a public official, but this is nothing compared to the corruption that hurts the people that is rife in corporate-­bought Congress, and Weiner is NOT. He should stay, and the puritanism of America is still absurd as it was in the 50s-Europe will be laughing again at our prudery and smutty interest.

  34. #34

    My point, not only are black politicians corrupt, white politicians are corrupt too.

  35. #35

    SEKen, that makes matters even worse.

    As a black man to the other, please explain the rationale behind referring to your sister in such pigfeet-eating fashion? You've essentially called her as a fat ass pigfeet-eating black woman. She eats pigfeet? So what!

    But I guess, Yvette "Beef Medallion-Eating" Alexander is not as sexy as dem dere pigz feets.

    BTW, I use 100% butter in my cooking.

    I don't know anything regarding Sulaimon Brown mental health stability because I'm not a mental health clinician. His testimony today before the DC Council isn't credible in my book. I didn't like none of the DC mayoral candidates.

    On the issue of Congressman Anthony Weiner, he's another Democrat liar. Let's see.... Clinton, Edwards, Weiner, Spitzer... are there any ethical politicians out there?

  37. #37

    SEis4ME, you need to cut down on eating the pure butter. I never referred to my Ward 7 Councilmember as fat ass black woman. I referred to her as fat ass. I'm not the only one that have referred to her as pig's feet. As a matter of fact, I got the name from other posters. Someone referred to her on the Washington Post blog, as pig's feet. LOL

    On other issue, I didn't see Cherita 12 inch painted finger nails Whiting testify today.

    Where is ItsJustAMess? LOL

  38. #38

    @Grace Jones; you are correct. I stay away from Twitter, FaceBook, and other social sites on the Internet. As the guy stated on 'Saturday Night Live', he's single, but he deletes his history every 4 hours, in case he dies, he doesn't want his mother to see what sites he has visited. LOL

  39. #39

    SE Ken: Per my previous comment, the broadcast of Cherita's testimony did not stream because the site crashed. How convenient because the live hearing just prior to this one streamed fine.

  40. #40

    @Anonymous 25: it is very interesting the system wasn't working when Cherita Whiting had to testify. I wonder if someone was trying to protect her, or were they trying to protect themselves? She has more lives and allies than a bag of cats!

  41. #41

    Is HT in the house?

  42. #42

    Marciela: The broadcast came back online shortly after she was done. It sure does make you wonder.

  43. #43

    What continues to bother me is that nearly every black city council person in this city has been accused of some form of corruption. Yet, this city's white elected officials are given a free pass. Implicit in the attacks on the black leadership is the notion that their white counterparts are somehow more ethical.

    And, in reference to the comment that Congressman Weiner's behavior should be excused because he does things that men do, is complete nonsense. Just like these black politicians are being called to the carpet because of their conduct so should Congressman Weiner. However, white folks have always given their own a pass when it comes to violating the public trust. It's only silly and self-righteous negros who are so damn anxious and eager to condemn their own over the same things that white politicians have done since the beginning of time....

  44. #44

    It certainly makes one draw conclusions, that's for sure!

  45. #45

    @Southeast Ken - Brother, I am front and center watching Sulaimon Brown "run" this hearing. I could care less if he wore shades or a paperbag over his head as long as I could hear what was coming out of his mouth. I said day one there was some merit in his allegations and I have not moved from that position. Mary Cheh and her council co-horts were proven to be sniveling, butt-kissing, brainless twits by the very one who everyone says is delusional. I especially liked it when he peeled Cheh's skin and exposed her raw a--. Say whatever you want, Sulaimon's mother didn't raise no punk. Good thing, Cheh serves on the Council 'cause she wouldn't win a $5 raffle in a court of law. I didn't see the start of the hearing but it's apparent they didn't ask Cherita "I Didn't Check The Damn Box" Whiting nothing more than to state her position. What was her answer? Head, shoulders, knees, or toes? I'm so ready for the FBI investigation to come forward. If I'm wrong in siding with Sulaimon Brown, so be it. I'm praying they conduct polygraph tests on everyone's name mentioned in this mess. And, if that brother is telling the truth, then I expect every member of the Council and Vincent C. Gray to publicly kiss his Vaseline-slick a-- on national tv in 3D.

  46. #46

    While they talking about Sulaimon's credibiity you have CM Marion Barry being caught talking to, none other than Lorraine "I SPEAK FOR VINCE GRAY" Green...CM Barry, on the dais, is overheard talking to a womannamed "Lorraine" on his cell phone. Says he wants to "help with the PR effort." Talk about SLIME!!!!

    Whether or not you "like" or "believe" Sulaimon Brown, the disrespect that he was shown today was beneath those of the supposed public servants on the DC City Council.

    For David Catania to name-call and then say that he has two jobs and Mr. Brown has none...WOW a powerful, employed white man showing his superiority over a black man, not at all new to Washington DC.

    Mary Cheh, flexing her "I lick for Vince Gray" gums to threaten Mr. Brown to recall something that he cannot. If this were a court of law her bahvior would have been considered "badgering the witness" and his statements would have been "asked and answered" and she could not have continued to badger him.

    You would have to be a complete idiot to NOT beleive that Vince Gray, Lorraine Green, Howard Brooks and Stephanie Reich DID engage in paying this man and securing him a job in DC government because of his connection to Mayoral Candidate and now Mayor Gray.

    I agreed with Mr. Brown when he snapped at Mr. Barry and his butt-licking of Vince Gray and his "Character, Integrity and Leadership". Mr. Brown said the Mayor is a crook, half the Council is under investigation and you, Mr. Barry were locked up by the very same FBI that I am talking to now...HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    WHEN IS THE RECALL?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

  47. #47

    Whatever the outcome I was glad to see CM Catnasty meet his match.

  48. #48

    Suliamon is very witty and stands his ground. No wonder Gray paid him to attack Fenty and then gave him a job.

  49. #49

    WARD4DC,

    I know you are sorry you voted for Gray. I beleive that you worked worked very hard on attacking Fenty in every post you made for months. I think it was Dorothy height not getting a meeting when she requested it that sent you into a rage.

    Rememeber next time. Don't shit on people that produce results. Otherwise, you might elect an 70 year old man thats only talent is pointing the finger at other people.

    Baseball tickets and a broken down fire truck that was eventually sold for scrap medal....jesus christ!!!

  50. #50

    LOL@itsjustamess; you are a riot. I enjoy reading your post. Please continue to share you opinions on this and other issues.

    @hymesb, Adrian Fenty wasn't a Saint either. Yes, he was disrespectful to the late Dorothy Irene Height. My wife is a member of Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. and the National Council of Negro Women. Fenty was disrespectful to blacks, whites, and others. I foresee dirt coming out on Fenty in the future as it did with the former Governor of California.

    @tony; you make a good point too. I don't see the mostly white media going after the corrupt white DC Councilmembers. Miss Graham, Miss Catania, and Jack Evans all have skeletons in their closets. Why are some gay men so vicious and vindictive? Miss Catania is one vicious Queen. She met her match several years ago at a DC Council hearing with former Ward 2 ANC Commissioner Leroy Thorpe.

    @Truth Hurts; I agree with you, Ward 5 DC Councilmember Harry Thomas, Jr. need to resign from office. Kwame Brown need to resign. My Ward 7 Councilmember Yvette Alexander is an embarrassment to the residents of Ward 7 and she need to be voted out of office. This will give her time to fix pickle pig feet for her food parties and Sunday dinners.

    I didn't like Fenty or Gray, but I held my nose like many DC voters by voting for Vincent Gray. You couldn't pay me to run for political office. Politicians need to keep their asses off the Internet looking for sexual hookups, married and unmarried. I care not to join Twitter, Facebook, or no other social network. What you say on these sites can come back to haunt you.

    Yesterday's hearing was a circus. I just heard on WTOP news, Marion Barry stated to Sulaimon Brown, you are out of your G-- dam mind. I didn't see this part of the hearing. All DC voters should be outraged. I dislike all sitting members of our DC Council.

    The comment below was posted in the Washington Post. LOL LOL

    ROCKHARDJOCKVA
    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 !

  52. #52

    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.

  53. #53

    @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.

  54. #54

    @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".

  55. #55

    @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.

    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 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.

    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.

    @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.
