WASHINGTON (AP) — A former campaign aide to District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray is due in court.
Thomas Gore was the acting treasurer for Gray’s 2010 campaign against then-mayor Adrian Fenty. He pleaded guilty to making secret payments to another candidate and shredding records of the transactions. That candidate, Sulaimon Brown, was paid to stay in the race and make negative comments about Fenty.
Gore will be in court Wednesday for a status conference. At his last court appearance, a judge agreed not to set a sentencing date because prosecutors said their investigation into corruption in district politics is continuing. Three former Gray campaign aides have pleaded guilty to felonies, including one who helped funnel $650,000 in illegal contributions into the campaign.
