Council Chairman Vincent Gray Off the Hook

District Council Chairman Vincent Gray came out swinging against the Washington Times after the D.C. Office of Campaign Finance ruled he didn't receive special favors from a developer or misused official stationary to ask for contributions to the Democratic Party. 

Gray's office blasted out that the Washington Times put out "erroneous and inaccurate" reports that he exchanged votes for favors in connection with repairs on his home.  OCF also said that Gray, in his role as chairman of the council, was acting within his duties in writing a letter on official stationary asking for donations to support voting rights for the District.    

"I have said all along that I committed no wrongdoing in connection with both of these situations," Gray said. "I hope that any unfounded questions raised in the Washington Times and other media can now be put to rest."

Gray announced last week that he will run for mayor against current Mayor Adrian Fenty.
