Former D.C. mayoral candidate Sulaimon Brown is scheduled to appear this morning before a D.C. Council committee investigating hiring practices in the administration of Mayor Vincent C. Gray.

Mr. Brown is testifying under court order after refusing to do so.

He alleged that Gray campaign aides promised him a job and paid him money if he agreed to stay in last year’s mayoral race and attack then-incumbent Adrian M. Fenty, who was seeking re-election.

Mr. Gray, a Democrat, and his aides have denied the accusations during the investigations, and no payments have been independently verified.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office has said it’s looking into Mr. Brown’s accusations. Mr. Brown received a six-figure city job earlier this year but was fired.
