I had no idea either though her wedding to Kevin Johnson (Sacramento mayor) gave me pause -- I thought, perhaps, as so many do, she was evolving (and then the campaign got going so it went off my radar).

Here is more on Rhee, Johnson and Michelle's ex-husband (who is raising their 2 daughters).

________________________________

"You have to hand it to Michelle Rhee and Kevin Johnson: They pulled off the low-key wedding they wanted.

The former D.C. schools chancellor, 41, and the Sacramento mayor, 45, tied the knot in front of about 40 friends Saturday at a Tennessee mountain resort — almost a year after they canceled a more lavish ceremony that drew too much media attention for their liking.

.....Which is how they’ve always conducted the relationship, first forged through their shared ed-policy wonkery. Rhee and Johnson never officially confirmed they were dating until she showed up at a D.C. meeting two years ago flashing an engagement ring.

For their destination wedding, Rhee and Johnson picked Blackberry Farm, a hotel in Walland, Tenn., where they’d previously stayed — a location convenient for her two daughters, who live in Nashville with their father, Kevin Huffman. (Rhee’s ex-husband — winner of The Washington Post’s “America’s Next Great Pundit” contest in ’09 — was named commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Education in the spring. Rhee lives there part time.) Starr, 12, was Rhee’s maid of honor, and Olivia, 9, was the flower girl. Johnson’s best man was his brother Ronnie West. The ceremony was performed by Pastor Alexis Thomas, the mayor’s minister during his days playing for the NBA’s Phoenix Suns. Washington guests included Rhee’s successor, Kaya Henderson. The bride wore a Monique Lhuillier gown........"

More on Kaya Henderson from the "Thinker" article:

"....Rhee's crony from TNTP was her number-two in D.C., Kaya Henderson. As Rhee's bodyguard, Henderson kept truth-seekers away. The barely literate Henderson -- e.g., "D.C.'s public schools is [sic] tearing it up" (watch the video) -- now runs the D.C. school system. How convenient. She was able to effectively dissolve the investigations into irrelevancy....."

Well let's hope the 'Mayor' has 'evolved' a bit too. He sure stunk up the joint in Phoenix years ago.
