WASH POST

 

A couple days ago we told you of mayoral spokeswoman Carrie Brooks' upcoming wedding to Daniel Kohns, noting that Brooks said Mayor Fenty does not have the legal authority to preside over her ceremony. The Post's Style section followed up today with confirmation from the courthouse. Well, that didn't sit right with D.C. Council member Jack Evans, one of the city's longest serving pols, who informs D.C. Wire that he has performed a wedding ceremony.

 

All elected officials have the power to do so, Evans insisted, as long as a judge is in the room. In Evans's case, it was D.C. Superior Court Chief Judge Rufus King III who was present when Evans married two family friends years ago. Evans said he informed King of the current debate over Fenty and King assured him the mayor could preside as long as a judge is present.

 

Asked about the ceremony he performed, Evans recalled that when he asked if the groom would take the bride "for better or worse," the man replied: "Well, I can do the better. I'm not so sure about the worse."

 

Everyone laughed. "Okay, well, what about for richer or poorer, then?" Evans quipped, to which everyone laughed again. He reports that couple is still together.

This is great news. With Chief Judge Rufus King assisting in the marriage ceremony, Carrie Brooks' upcoming wedding to Daniel Kohns will be a royal feast as you will have a KING (Judge King) and a QUEEN (Mayor Fenty) present!!!!!
