D.C. alcohol control board chair faces ethics questions

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray (D) said he won’t reappoint alcohol control board Chairman Charles Brodsky and will consider removing him after allegations of ethical lapses were leveled against him by a former board member, the Washington Examiner reports.

The newspaper had reported that Mital Gandhi, who recently resigned from the D.C. Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, claimed in his resignation letter that Brodsky asked for his support in changing a city regulation on behalf of Washington Wholesale Liquor Co. because the company was a “prospective sponsor” for Brodsky’s Nation’s Triathlon and might “also support [Brodsky] in a future [D.C.] council bid.”

Brodsky has denied the allegation. Washington Wholesale did not returned calls for comment. The Gray administration is investigating the matter.
