Money orders

More than 200 money orders funded Vincent C. Gray’s mayoral campaign last year. ­­Sources say that cash contributions in excess of the city’s $25 cap were improperly converted into money orders, which have a higher limit. Gray says that he cannot explain the irregularities but that those responsible “should be held accountable.”
