Kwame Brown is just the latest D.C. political figure to make headlines amid accusations of improprieties.
Kwame Brown, the former D.C. Council chairman, resigned and pleaded guilty to bank fraud in June after being charged in federal court for falsifying bank records to obtain a home equity loan and boat. He was also charged and pleaded guilty to misdemeanor use of 2008 campaign funds. When he is sentenced in September, he faces a maximum of six months for the misdemeanor and up to six months under sentencing guidelines for bank fraud. Bill O'Leary/The Washington Post Buy Photo
