Disgraced ex-councilmember Michael Brown is going to Disney World! Or at least somewhere in the general vicinity. In a court order last week, a federal judge approved Brown’s request to travel to Florida between Dec. 25 and Jan. 2 on a family trip.
This won’t be Brown’s first trip outside the D.C. area since pleading guilty to accepting bribes in June. He’s also been approved to travel to New York to visit his sick mother, apparently without incident.
Brown might have time for more family trips in his future, too. Brown, who’s given the feds information on an area businessman resembling Jeff Thompson, has had his sentencing pushed to Jan. 16 so prosecutor can consider more evidence.
