SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Mayor Kevin Johnson and Michelle Rhee married over the weekend.

The mayor confirmed the report during a radio interview Tuesday on Sports 1140.

Rhee is a former Washington D.C. public school chancellor. She served on Sacramento’s St. Hope school board from 2006 to 2007 where she and Johnson met. She founded an education advocacy non-profit, Students First, which is headquartered in Sacramento.

The wedding came almost a year to the day after the couple’s originally scheduled wedding date. Johnson’s office announced Tuesday that the ceremony was held Saturday at Blackberry Farm near Knoxville with a small group of friends and family.

The former NBA star and the education reform advocate had planned to marry on Sept. 4, 2010, in a much larger ceremony in Sacramento, but they rescheduled the nuptials after a wave of public interest. Johnson and Rhee have been engaged since 2009.

A honeymoon is planned, but a spokesman says the mayor will not discuss details because he plans to surprise his new bride with them.

      Just wondering…How is he “pandering to illegal aliens”? Didn’t think the mayor had any power as far as that goes.

    And this is in the politics thread why?

    She did it for the money; don’t know why he did it when there are so many blond busty bimbos around.
