The Post this morning announced that Michael A. Brown has left the mayoral race with just scant days before the election (Quitting on Friday before a Tuesday election?! Good God.) and has thrown all six of his supporters behind Linda Cropp. Brown is apparently pouty that Adrian Fenty was doing better in the polls, despite less experience and hair. It’s unknown at this point whether or not this is really just an excuse for him not to feel disappointed in his vote totals on Tuesday, or whether he really believes that Linda Cropp would be better than him.
Brown said yesterday, “It’s time to step back and move up somebody else. That’s what ego is all about, and that’s what caring for the city is all about.” So, um, Michael, why are you only stepping down four days before the election, instead of when it might’ve done some good months ago?
