D.C. Council member Jim Graham requested a supplemental audit Monday on the nonprofit Peaceoholics, reigniting political controversy around the group as its co-founders prepare to run for office.
A political feud between a D.C. Council member and the founders of a grass-roots nonprofit youth outreach group has led to questions about the member's involvement in an audit being conducted by the D.C. auditor, and in the neutrality of the independent Children and Youth Investment Trust Corp., according to interviews and documents reviewed by The Washington Times.
Despite their track record with troubled youth, "Neil Stanley knows it would be political suicide to work with us," Mr. Abraham said of Mr. Gray's pick to head the Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services.
Mr. Moten and Mr. Abraham frequently said their funding and contacts dried up the moment Mr. Gray was elected, leaving their once-robust operation with a skeleton staff of volunteers.
