As the dust settles on this real-life corruption unfurling on the council, I bet DC council chair Kwame Brown is thinking he’s the next marked man in the line up for the federal raid brigade. The DC Board of Elections and Ethics referred his case to the US Attorney’s office in July. Apparently, Brown forget to report some $270,000 in 2008 campaign funds along with slipping his brother some $200, 000 to do “work for his campaign.”

It looks like truth or consequences time for some DC council members. But until DC residents start recalling candidates, demanding reforms and electing credible people to office, we all should grab a bowl of popcorn and enjoy the jokes the council keeps giving because it sure isn’t sound governance.
