First, Sulaimon Brown lost his job. Now, he says, he's lost his bike.

Brown, the former mayoral candidate and current mayoral pain in the ass, says his black Trek bicycle was stolen from a downtown bike rack when he was meeting with the FBI earlier this week. The lock that had secured the bike is also missing, Brown says.

"I was on my way to the appointment and I locked my bike on one of those little metal things on the street, across the street," Brown says, "and when I came out the bike was gone."

Brown has said he met with FBI agents who are investigating allegations he's made about Mayor Vince Gray's campaign.

Brown was recently fired from $110,000-a-year gig at the D.C. Department of Health Care Finance, and now says he was promised a job and given cash payments from Gray's campaign. Gray has denied the allegations.

As for the hybrid bike, Brown says he hasn't yet filed a police report. He says it was worth about $1,800, purchased several months ago, and was used to commute to and from work.

"It was a very good bike," Brown says.
