In the spring of 2010, Brooks signed the name of a friend on four money orders for $500 that were donated to the Gray campaign and reported under the friend’s name to the D.C. Office of Campaign Finance, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said he also obtained four money orders from Gore and signed his own name on them as a $2,000 donation to the Gray campaign, even though Brooks had not contributed the money himself.

When confronted with information about the payments during a meeting with FBI agents on April 6, 2011, officials said Brooks lied five times.
