Mayor Vince Gray has a headache called Sulaimon Brown. Brown ran a mayoral race for the sole purpose of attacking former Mayor Adrian Fenty, and received a handful of votes on election day. He was then hired by Fenty's victorious challenger, Vince Gray. Brown was then fired from that $110,000-a-year job because of a restraining order against him -- it involved allegations that he had stalked a 13-year-old girl.
Brown is now telling The Washington Post that he originally got the job as part of a quid-pro-quo with Gray's campaign.
Brown says he was offered a city job if Gray won in exchange for continuing campaign attacks on incumbent Mayor Adrian M. Fenty. He also alleges that two Gray campaign aides gave him a series of cash payments to help finance his mayoral campaign.
