Former AG Peter Nickles returns to private practice

Nickles said the new practice would be a one-stop shop for clients who need "one person to lead them through the maze of government, regulatory processes and the court and to provide public relations." A longtime friend of Fenty's family, Nickles role in the administration stretched beyond that of attorney general. He was often the mayor's de facto spokesman, wading into controversial issues, including questions about the mayor's foreign travel and the city's donation of an ambulatnce and firetruck to a town in the Dominican Republic.

Orange campaign continues as he seeks Brown's open seat

Orange wants the DC Democratic State Committee to appoint him to Brown's at-large seat, which is all but certain to be vacant after the November general election. On the Hill Thursday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee approved by voice vote a bill that would reduce from 114 to 70 days the amount of time after a council vacancy occurs for special elections to fill the slot.

D.C. mayor's race is over, but tensions persist as council returns

Gray was mobbed by reporters who all wanted to talk about one thing: Would he consider keeping Michelle Rhee in light of her characterization of the election results as "devastating for the schoolchildren of Washington, D.C."? Even though the election is officially over, the lingering tensions between the council and the Fenty administration remain. The council Tuesday will try to override two bills the mayor rejected during the recess period in a "pocket veto."

Brown's ascension to council chairman sets up special election

Brown's all but assured ascension to the chairman's spot after Tuesday's Democratic primary sets up a special election for his open seat. Even though the special election is many months away, the jockeying has already begun among those interested in the temporary appointment to Brown's job.
