Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) released the long-promised audit of his transition and inauguration fund this afternoon — yes, a Friday afternoon before a long weekend. Most notably, controversial campaign figures Howard C. Brooks and Reuben O. Charles got big payoffs from the fund, $34,500 and $70,000 respectively. Also notable are the donors: The largest, chipping in $50,000, was Lincoln Holdings, sports mogul Ted Leonsis’s former corporate entity. Among the smaller donations: $1,500 from Ivanhoe Donaldson, the disgraced former aide to Marion Barry.
