The campaign treasurer for a former D.C. councilmember has turned himself in to face theft and other charges.
The campaign treasurer for a former D.C. councilmember has been indicted on charges of stealing $115,000 from a campaign account.
D.C. Council member Michael A. Brown has more in common with his former campaign treasurer, Hakim Sutton, than the elections they have weathered together: Both have a history of money problems.
Mr. Sutton, identified as a co-borrower along with a Floretta Sutton-Logan, denied the allegations, the records show, including that he failed to return the vehicle.
According to the indictment, Sutton wrote 36 checks to himself from Brown's campaign account and spent some of the money on domestic and international travel.
