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 reportedly considering.
