Yesterday, U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen announced he would step down in April. The District’s top prosecutor spent four years investigating former D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray’s 2010 mayoral campaign, with six people pleading guilty to federal crimes. Gray has yet to be indicted, leaving questions about the unfinished business of Machen’s office in the wake of this announcement.
