Good government activists say that this week's indictment of a former D.C. Council member proves that more work is needed on reforming the city's campaign finance laws.

Evans will join D.C. Council colleagues Muriel Bowser and Tommy Wells in the race for the city's highest office.
Some people want the city's primary to remain in April, while others would prefer June.
D.C. Council Member Tommy Wells (D-Ward 6), fresh off an official launch of his mayoral campaign, joins Kojo and Tom in the studio.
The Ward 6 council member promised to clean up government, cut juvenile crime in half, improve access to education, and create a "next-generation public transit system."
Kojo talks with WAMU reporters Patrick Madden and Julie Patel about their investigative series detailing the influence of money in D.C. politics and public policy.
In a move that should surprise few who watch D.C. politics closely, the Ward 6 council member will formerly announce his candidacy for mayor this weekend.
