Gray acknowledges 'missteps'

By Washington Post editors

D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray says he wants the District's attorney general's office and the D.C. Council to review allegations by former mayoral candidate Sulaimon Brown that he made a deal with two Gray campaign aides to continue attacks on incumbent Adrian M. Fenty in exchange for a city job if Gray won.

During an afternoon news conference, Gray called a story in The Washington Post detailing the allegations "surprising, shocking and appalling." "I can't even imagine engaging in such reprehensible behavior," Gray said. Sulaimon Brown, the mayor added, "was not a surrogate for our campaign ... I cannot tell you that any more directly."

However, Gray said during the news conference: "I acknowledge we have made missteps. We have taken steps to address those missteps."

Brown, who was recently dismissed from his $110,000-a-year position with the D.C. Department of Health Care Finance, also alleges that two Gray campaign aides gave him a series of cash payments to help finance his campaign. The Post could not independently verify any payments.

Gray has adamantly denied Brown's allegations, saying the campaigns did not work in tandem. He said he agreed only to get a job interview for Brown, but not in return for attacks on Fenty.

A Post review of Brown's cellphone records between June and the Sept. 14 Democratic primary shows that he received 29 calls from numbers belonging to Gray, campaign chairman Lorraine Green, campaign consultant Howard Brooks and a Gray personal aide. Through January, 17 of Brown's incoming and outgoing calls with those numbers ranged from 5 minutes to 17 minutes, according to the records.

Also, text messages from Brown's cellphone in November and December underscore his frustration as he questioned whether the Gray campaign would keep what Brown said was a promise of a job. The response from Gray's cellphone assured Brown that no agreement had been "breached."

Brown said he received payments from Green and Brooks.

Green, who headed Gray's transition team, denied paying Brown and said she once talked to him about potentially working in the administration. "Really? I gave him cash payments? I don't even really know this man. This is ridiculous," she said. "Just as other people came to us during the campaign . . . he wanted to be considered for a job."
When asked in a second interview about the number of calls between the two of them, Green said she generally returns calls out of courtesy and answers her phone without knowing who is calling.

Brooks initially said he met Brown during town hall meetings and didn't remember calling him. Told about the phone records, Brooks said that he talked to several candidates during the election and that he reached out to Brown to compliment him on his performance during a debate. "He came off the stage, and I told him how clever it was," said Brooks, who declined to comment further without an attorney present.

Asked at Sunday afternoon's news conference if he had misplaced his trust in campaign, transition, and administration aides, the mayor said: "We're taking a look at everything at this point." Gray also said he has asked D.C. Council Chairman Kwame Brown to do conduct a review.

Answering a reporter's question about his reputation, he said, "I am a person of integrity."

"If I had to look back at this situation now ... I'd take a different tack,' said Gray, when asked by Brown would end up with a job at health care finance. "I want to move on with the business of the city."

Initially, the mayor had defended Brown's hiring, which was first reported last month in a Post article about high salaries and political hires.

Missteps? Gray fell flat on his face! Too late now but he'll be a one term mayor. We Washingtonians have to do our homework and be aware of the wolf wearing lamb's skin. When Brown had financial problems a couple of years ago that should have told us he couldn't be a good manager for the city. Gray's dismissal from HHS was fair warning of his shady ways. We have no one to blame but ourselves.

There appears to be an editing error in the last graf:

I don't think this is a matter for city council, attorney general or inspector general but US District's attorney. Otherwise this will fade away just like the Harry Thomas deal has. People need to understand that this is not acceptable and should not be tolerated. I read one comment about vote corruption in Ward 7 and 8 during primaries. I am starting to believe that.

The city is already suffering from an administration that is not competent: 200 911 calls dropped because of lack of planning when scheduling the furloughs, 3 homicides this past weekend put us just 2 murders behind PG county. Police has relaxed because they don't have to work hard anymore like they used to under Fenty. DPR has practically go back to the old ways and who knows what is happening in the other agencies.

Crime, delay in services, poor snow removal are symptomatic of an administration that is not interested in the wellbeing of the city. Sad, very sad for people who moved to DC believing the city had change

I'm watching NBC 4 News where Brown states that he acknowledges that he engaged in unethical practices but he is an ethical man. Let me be the first to say Huh! Talk about doublespeak. All of this should be investigated by an outside party, not by an appointee of the Mayor. What happens to people when they get involved in politics? Is there such a thing as an honest politician? I hope I see one before I leave this earth. It has been very disappointing thus far.

The Gray Transition Team and Mayor Gray himself felt the need to give Mr. Brown an interview but felt no need or level of respect to even allow access to him or any semblance of a job interview for his volunteers, some of whom are loosing their homes. Aren't these the very volunteers who put Gray and those Transition Team theirs and con-artist in office.

I hope that Ward 4, 5, 7,and 8 realize exactly what this Mayor and his Administration thinks of each and every one of Y.O.U.; absolutely NOTHING. He used you to get him in office and allowed this Lorraine Green person to deny you access to employment while securing employment for her daughter and son and her friends and the likes of Mr. Brown.

Sad, Sad, Sad, Sad, Sad day in DC politics. We are a laughing stocks all over again, and yet Mayor Gray is still covering for Lorraine Green her and Accepted Service appointees.

Again, what that should tell you is that he doesn't give a damn about DC residents. He is in office to make himself and his friends RICH off of the DC taxpayer and the DC coffers.

Let me say this for the record. So far in the Gray Administration, getting responses from his Agency Directors and Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier on issues, I didn't get any responses. One good thing former King Fenty enforced in his administration and that was customer service and he held his agency directors accountable. What I've seen so far in the Gray administration is business as usual.

What a fake controversy.

It's a MAJOR mistake for Mayor Gray to play into the hands of the Post by treating the unsupported allegations of this hustler as legitimate and conducting an inquiry into this foolishness.

The Post's article admits there was no (zero) evidence Gray paid this character any money to do anything, yet it published the hit piece anyway. The rest of the Post story is pure dog-bites-man -- just a tale of a candidate trying to help folks who supported his campaign. Nothing new there. If that's wrong, then a lot of political fundraisers who were rewarded with cushy Ambassadorships are in big trouble.

Sulaimon Brown deserved no more than fifteen minutes of fame/infamy. By authorizing an inquiry, Gray, sadly, has guaranteed this street character many months of undeserved press.

Are we supposed to believe Sulaimon Brown--a disgruntled loser with an axe to grind? He has NO PROOF of any wrong doing. All he has are text messages WRITTEN BY HIM and responses from Mayor Gray telling him he is crazy. How is that proof of anything? Finidng a job for a campaign supporter is not a crime. If it were, Fenty--and every other politicisn in DC-- would have been locked up years ago. Let's not forget that Sulaiman Brown has a criminal record reflecting dishonesty and poor judgment, not to mention the restraining order about staliking a 13 year old girl--which raises a host of other questions. Even if I were a Gray hater (and I'm not) I would be suspicious of these allegations.

Prediction: The Post's smear today -- based on some discredited street character's unfounded allegations -- will not cause a single voter who supported Gray to change his/her mind when he's up for reelection. In fact the smear will likely have the OPPOSITE effect. Voters know this manufactured anti-Gray controversy just shows that the Post will not accept the fact that Gray beat the Post's frontman candidate, Fenty.

It seems the Post's crowd believes democracy is okay only so long as their candidate wins.

or oh oh no outrage when Mayor Adrian Fenty's administration placed Kelly Valentine, the director of the District's embattled Office of Risk Management, on administrative leave (paid im sure) The Washington Examiner first report that whistleblowers told the FBI that Valentine gave lucrative contracts to her friends. Contracts ranging from health insurance coverage and private investigations were handed off to companies with ties to Valentine, according to whistleblowers.Last month, Fenty and his attorney general, Peter Nickles, held a news conference where they announced that the District might have to pay $6 million to cover the life insurance premiums the city collected from hundreds of disabled employees over seven years but didn't pass along to the insurance companies.

or oh oh Yusuf Acar According to the Affidavit in Support of the Arrest Warrants, the two defendants are alleged to have stolen large sums of money from the District of Columbia through a variety of schemes that began as part of a conspiracy in May 2008.

In one scheme, a quantity of goods was ordered by OCTO from a vendor such as AITC. The vendor actually ordered a lesser number of the item from the distributor, but billed the D.C. government for the full amount originally requested by OCTO. An OCTO official, such as Yusuf Acar, allegedly falsely certified that the greater quantity was actually received and the vendor billed the District of Columbia Government for the greater amount and was paid accordingly. The co-conspirators then split the proceeds of the crime.

A second scheme involved billing for “ghost employees.” These are contract employees supposedly hired by a vendor, such as AITC, to perform work under a specific contract for OCTO. However, these ghost employees never actually performed any work.,
