When I first heard that former DC Councilman Micheal A. Brown was going to plead guilty for corruption I was home sick with a "mystery virus". It made a horrible day brighter, for me.
I never, ever, ever liked Michael A. Brown. Let's see with 2008 posts like "Michael Brown, I hate you," and "Michael A. Brown, G-damned Ahole" I haven't been shy about my feelings about him. In 2006, when I gather he (or possibly another Mike Brown) was going to suck up to the MD Sunday church parking vote, I really didn't have any feelings. But when he ran as a fake Independent, undermining the spirit of the law for non-Democrats, making robo-calls, littering the neighborhood, feelings, deep negative feelings welled up inside. If Councilman Marion Barry's constant re-elections made me shake my head, Brown's winning made me continue to shake. Thankfully, Brown wasn't re-elected.
I can't wait to see who else Ron Machen catches in his net of Justice.
Disclosure- I sit on a Federal Grand Jury, and if this did come before me, (which it did not) I would have recused myself.
