Sulaimon Brown Fired From Gray Administration

It was a wild day at city hall Thursday. It began early in the morning with a report by the Washington City Paper that Sulaimon Brown had been escorted by police out of the building where he worked in the Department of Health Care Finance.

Brown's hiring had been a source of criticism for Gray, and when word got out that Brown had been escorted, reporters immediately tried to reach the mayor. But at several events Thursday, Gray seemed to be avoiding the press, which added to the confusion.

Late in the day, a press briefing was hastily scheduled, and that's when things became even more surreal. As Gray explained the situation, Brown showed up. He sat in the audience and later, as tears streamed down his face, he said he was fired because the director, his boss at the department, told him a council member wanted him gone.
