DC Mayor: Comments on Probe Raise More Questions

District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray says it “just raises more questions'' when he comments on the long-running federal investigation of his 2010 campaign.

Four campaign aides have pleaded guilty to felonies related to Gray's winning Democratic primary campaign over then-mayor Adrian Fenty. The most recent was Vernon Hawkins, a longtime friend of the mayor who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

Court documents show Hawkins was involved in spending $650,000 in illicit funds that prosecutors have dubbed a ``shadow campaign.''

Gray told WNEW-FM on Friday that he doesn't comment about the probe because he and his attorney believe “it's just best to let the investigators do their work and let it play out.''

He also says “people assume'' he has more information than he actually has.
