Comment

This afternoon Mayor Vince Gray chaired a symposium of the D.C. Chamber of Commerce, but he refused to take reporters' question on the investigations into Brown's allegations.

Earlier: Fired mayoral appointee Sulaimon Brown said Friday he was summoned again by the FBI to discuss his allegations against Vince Gray’s mayoral campaign.

Brown has accused D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray's campaign aides of paying him during last year's campaign to heckle former mayor Adrian Fenty during mayoral debates. Brown was a minor candidate himself.

Brown first met with FBI officials last week at their request. The meeting lasted five hours. He also met last week with staffers of the U.S. House committee with oversight over DC. Chairman Darrell Issa(R-CA) made known yesterday that the committee is also looking into Brown's allegations.

Brown told reporters this morning that he thinks Issa's committee should be investigating so an independent body can examine the campaign practices.

He said he met with FBI officials for three hours.

Brown was hired briefly by Gray's administration, then abruptly fired after questions arose about Brown's past encounter's with law enforcement.

Brown walked into the FBI's Washington Field Office around 9:30 this morning.
