D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray on Tuesday responded to charges that his 2010 campaign team accepted cash donations over the $25 legal limit by converting them to money orders, attributing the possible slip-ups to aides during his "truncated" campaign.
A hearing into the personnel practices of D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray started this morning with council member Mary M. Cheh's announcement that a second hearing will be tentatively scheduled for April 7.
On March 28, Mr. Charles told the council's Committee on Government Operations and the Environment that he had conversations with some taxicab companies who supported the mayor.
"The names now fail me, but there were at least three or four conversations where they came to the transition office and they wanted to discuss how this administration would treat their interests differently than the previous one," Mr. Charles said.
