Eric Holder and Sharone Malone

Attorney General Eric Holder and his wife, Dr. Sharone Malone, married on April 7, 1990. When the prominent couple met, Malone was finishing up her medical residency and wasn’t sure if she wanted to move or remain in D.C. Meeting Holder was all the reason she needed to stay.
