Al Gore supporters had a familiar list of delegate candidates in Tuesday’s D.C. Democratic presidential primary, including D.C. Councilmembers Sandy Allen, Jack Evans, and Jim Graham. Supporters of fringe candidate Lyndon LaRouche, meanwhile, also had a familiar name among their choices: Marshall Brown. Could that be the same Brown who works in Williams’ Office of the Public Advocate? “No, of course not,” says the veteran operative. “Can you imagine that, Marshall Brown supporting LaRouche? The Marshall Brown?…I’m a longtime supporter of the vice president. All the way.” —Michael Schaffer
