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 [...]
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, [...]
In 2010, Kwame Brown’s campaign for D.C. Council chairman was awash in cash. By the end of the general election, the-then at-large councilmember reported a total of $698,767.00 in donations and $690,312.10 in expenses.

Specifically, how is this guy so bad at running [...]
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.
Brown was sentenced to three months in prison in March on bank fraud charges. More importantly for LL's purposes, U.S. Attorney Ron Machen has said that no one, including Brown, will face [...]
The 2014 mayor's race has its first candidate who isn't on the D.C. Council: Reta Lewis, a former employee of the State Department and the Clinton administration.
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 [...]
This past week was not a good one for former D.C. Council chairman and convicted felon Kwame “Fully Loaded” Brown. First, a judge denied his request to be allowed to travel to North Carolina as a part of a college tour for District youngsters that he says he’s been a part of in past years. [...]
