Nickles sees nothing wrong with developer's fixes for Gray
Attorney General Peter J. Nickles said he sees no wrongdoing in the repairs completed at the home of D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray (D) -- a story first reported in the Washington Times on Wednesday.
"I don't think I read a serious allegation there. I call it like I see them. I'm not speaking on anyone's behalf," Nickles said Thursday morning, a day after the fallout for Gray.
WCS Construction, a company owned by megadeveloper Chris Smith, a friend of Gray's, provided repairs and architectural services to the chairman beginning in July.
Gray said he paid more than $10,000 for the work. Smith also owns William C. Smith & Co., one of the region's development leaders.
"There's no indication of quid pro quo, except innuendo," Nickles said. "It's just a bunch of isolated facts put together."
