Sulaimon Brown arrested multiple times prior to D.C. appointment
Sulaimon Brown had multiple run-ins with the law, including an attempted-murder charge in Chicago, when he was appointed to a $110,000-a-year post in the administration of Mayor Vince Gray, city sources told the Washington Post.
When Brown, a former D.C. mayoral candidate, was appointed as an analyst at the Department of Health Care Finance, the Gray administration knew of the three D.C. charges — in addition to a protective order and a conviction in the District for unlawful entry, according to the Washington Post.
Gray officials did not know, however, of the 1988 attempted-murder charge in Chicago, for which Brown was acquitted, or a 2008 arrest on suspicion of assault in East Orange, N.J., where he was not indicted, a source close to Gray’s transition team who spoke on the condition of anonymity told the Post.
