DeMorning Links: Hitched at last

Former D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee married her longtime fiance, Sacramento Mayor and former NBA star Kevin Johnson, in a small ceremony over the weekend, at long last. The hitch comes almost exactly one year after it was originally planned for Sacramento but was cancelled after questions were raised about Johnson’s ties to the developer hosting the event and its proximity to the first day of school last year. Further details come from the Sacramento Bee, which reports the wedding took place at Blackberry Farm, a luxury hotel in the Great Smoky Mountains, and that Johnson’s brother was his best man. Unnoted: The ceremony took place in the state where Rhee’s ex-husband is education commissioner.
