    A Council committee is looking into allegations of nepotism, cronyism and inflated salaries in the early weeks of the Gray administration.

    Former mayoral candidate Sulaimon Brown has said that Gray's campaign chairwoman and other aides gave him cash and promised him a job in exchange for bad-mouthing then-Mayor Adrian Fenty on the campaign trail.
