A congressional panel looking into unethical practices aligned with Mayor Vincent Gray's 2010 campaign, has determined that Sulaimon Brown's claim that he was promised a high-paying District government job in exchange for his public rants against then-Mayor Adrian Fenty, lacks credibility.
According to a published report, while Brown appeared to have received money from members of the campaign, there was no evidence to support his allegation surrounding the job he abruptly lost in January after Gray's administration began.
The report also states that other findings contained in the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform would be released on Oct. 31.
The panel, which based its findings on interviews and documents provided the City Council and Gray's office, also reportedly described Brown as having a "poor grasp of the facts."
"While there is some circumstantial evidence that may support Brown's allegations, including cell phone records, internal city e-mails and copies of text messages between Brown (and members of Gray's campaign), overall the evidence is insufficient to support Brown's allegations," according to information contained in the published report.
