Former Ward 1 D.C. Council candidate Jeff Smith came to D.C. Superior Court today to be sentenced, but he didn't take it quietly. When he got a chance to talk, Smith accused U.S. Attorney Ron Machen's prosecutors of a list of misdeeds in their investigation of the illicit shadow campaign he received from campaign-crime impresario Jeff Thompson, from threatening to prosecute [...]
Ward 1 Democratic nominee Brianne Nadeau's path to a D.C. Council seat just got a little easier. Bryan Weaver, who dropped out of the Democratic primary to run in the general election, now tells LL that he won't pick up petitions to get on the November ballot.

Presumptive Ward 1 councilmember Brianne Nadeau just got a little less presumptive. While ostensible general election rival Bryan Weaver won't even tell LL whether he's actually running against Nadeau, real estate broker and former mayoral candidate Ernest Johnson says he'll enter the race as an independent.
Johnson, 65, says he's been gathering supporters in coffee shops around the ward and plans to [...]
After wresting the Ward 1 Democratic D.C. Council nomination from Jim Graham last month, Brianne Nadeau might be enjoying a quiet six months until the general election as the presumptive councilmember. Instead, thanks to a contested Ward 1 Democrats election last weekend, she found herself at odds last week with the same people who are supposed to get her elected in November.
Ahead of last Saturday's [...]
At 9:43 p.m., Brianne Nadeau hadn't arrived at her election-night party yet, but her campaign was prepping for a dramatic entrance. As Nadeau's campaign manager ushered handpicked supporters onto the stage to form a victorious-looking human tableau, the large crowd on the second floor of Solly's on U Street NW was glued to NewsChannel8, which was [...]
Ward 1 Councilmember Jim Graham planned a press briefing this afternoon to capitalize on a Washington Post story about Graham's contention that opponent Brianne Nadeau committed fraud and got improper help (from, among others, Graham) buying a condo. But the briefing took a turn when Nadeau showed up with her own supporters.
Graham's press conference—which drew just two reporters, including LL—was [...]
With 15 days to go before election day, the Ward 1 D.C. Council race is literally getting ugly. Councilmember Jim Graham claims that challenger Brianne Nadeau's campaign used Photoshop in a recent mailer to make him look worse.

This should make for some awkward encounters around the Wilson Building. At-Large Councilmember David Grosso tells LL that he's endorsing Ward 1 challenger Brianne Nadeau in her bid to unseat incumbent Jim Graham.
"It’s not normal for councilmembers to endorse people who are running against their colleagues," Grosso says.
Grosso says he chose to support Nadeau instead of fellow challenger Bryan Weaver because [...]
The Ward 1 vote against incumbent councilmember Jim Graham appears to be headed for a split, but it just got a little less schismatic. Former Phil Mendelson staffer Beverley Wheeler, who entered the race in September, says she's dropping out and backing Brianne Nadeau.
Wheeler lagged behind the two other challengers in fundraising, raising only $6,830.00 compared to Bryan Weaver's $45,437.02 and Nadeau's [...]
