|Norton Statement on Gray Campaign Investigation|
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) today released the following statement on the ongoing investigation into D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray’s 2010 campaign.
“Vincent Gray is a friend of longstanding who I have always known to have high professional and ethical standards. However, the criminal conduct by his campaign aides revealed in court is deeply disturbing and goes to the heart of the democratic process. Mayor Gray has an obligation to clear this matter up quickly.
“Nevertheless, I have seen no evidence that the investigation has affected District matters pending in Congress, nor should it. We have been fully able to process our business through the House and Senate, including some difficult matters. Cities and states across the country have faced similar investigations, and like the District, they have moved to address them.”
