Jamie Thompson wrote our November cover story about DA Susan Hawk. In that piece, Jamie broke the news that Hawk’s depression had taken her to the point of considering suicide. It’s one of the longest stories we’ve printed in many years, partly because it was important for the city to get the full picture of its district attorney’s illness but also because it was filled with so much compelling detail.
Jamie covered yesterday’s court hearing, the one in which the effort to unseat Hawk came to an end. Jamie filed this report for the Washington Post. Once again, Jamie got some details that no other reporter saw. Give it a read.
