An outspoken campaign supporter of D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray, who landed a city government job despite Mr. Gray's knowledge of her failure to disclose a 2001 felony wire fraud conviction on her application, is leaving her position, city officials said Monday.
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.
A former D.C. government worker said Monday he was directed by D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray's chief of staff to find a job for controversial mayoral contender Sulaimon Brown.
"I would assume he was interviewed," said Mr. Karim, himself a prominent Gray campaign supporter who landed a job with the city's Department of Healthcare Finance and then resigned when questions surfaced about his domestic life.
Talib Karim said he was directed by Gerri Mason Hall, the mayor's recently fired chief of staff, to find a place for Mr. Brown in the agency that matched his qualifications.
