WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington’s U.S. Attorney’s Office says it is assessing allegations by a former mayoral candidate about Mayor Vincent C. Gray’s campaign.

Sulaimon Brown, the former candidate, says he was promised a city job during last year’s campaign if he continued attacks on the former mayor, whom Gray defeated. He was recently fired from his city job.

Brown also told The Washington Post that two Gray campaign aides gave him cash payments to help finance his mayoral campaign.

Gray said earlier that he agreed to get a job interview for Brown, but not in return for attacks on the former mayor. Gray also says he is not aware of any payments to Brown.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said in an e-mailed statement late Wednesday that the office and the FBI are assessing the matter.
