Feisty Kwame Brown Lives on on Twitter

As D.C. Council Chairman, Kwame Brown had a reputation as a tussler. A day before he resigned from office, he even shoved reporter Mark Segraves into a wall.
Brown has been out of the Wilson Building for two years thanks to U.S. Attorney Ron Machen, and it looks like he won't be pursuing the at-large bid he was [...]

The Mayor’s Mouth

Mayor Vince Gray isn’t just running for re-election. He’s Muhammad Ali, pulling the rope-a-dope on his rivals like it’s the Rumble in the Jungle.
If you bring up how many of Gray’s friends are headed to prison, he’ll come back like Jedi master Obi-Wan Kenobi, stronger than he was before. He’s Rocky Balboa facing Apollo Creed, [...]

Che Brown Is a Free Man, Mostly

Che Brown's back! The brother of former D.C. Council Chairman Kwame Brown was released from a District halfway house yesterday, according to the Bureau of Prisons.

Beyond promising to make D.C. "the world-class city we deserve," Lewis' websitedoesn't reveal much about her campaign. LL asked Lewis for more information, but hasn't heard back (update: see [...]
