There's a new development in the investigation into Vince Gray's 2010 campaign for mayor of the District.
For most of Vincent Gray's three-plus years as mayor, federal prosecutors have been investigating alleged dirty tricks in his 2010 campaign. Gray has maintained he did nothing illegal and was aware of nothing illegal and prosecutors never presented any evidence implicating the mayor. All that changed Monday.
Mayor Vincent Gray's re-election campaign team says that the charges against businessman Jeffrey Thompson in no way suggest that Gray knew about Thompson's illegal campaign finance activities.
The man who blew the whistle on illegal activity during District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray's 2010 campaign is endorsing one of Gray's rivals.
The man considered the architect of a "shadow campaign" that helped finance Mayor Vincent Gray's 2010 mayor race is expected to be close to reaching a deal with prosecutors - just weeks before voters will decide whether Gray should have another round in the mayor's office.
As yet another aide to Mayor Vincent Gray's campaign is charged in connection with a corruption investigation, Councilwoman Mary Cheh says any candidates who benefited from the so-called "shadow campaign" should come forward.
