Brown meets with House Oversight Committee

Sulaimon Brown, the fired D.C. government employee and former mayoral candidate who says he was promised a job in exchange for bashing then-mayor Adrian M. Fenty last year, is meeting Tuesday with the House Oversight and Government Committee.

The committee, which oversees the District government, has no plans to investigate Brown’s allegations that he cut a deal with Gray (D) to get a job or that he received payments from two members of Gray’s campaign, according to a Congressional source who was not authorized to speak. However, the committee reached out to Brown to learn what process the city is using to investigate and whether he has any concerns, according to the source.

The D.C. Office of the Attorney General announced earlier Tuesday that it would not investigate Brown’s allegations directly as Gray requested Sunday. Instead, the office will guide probes that have already been launched by the Office of the Inspector General and the Office of Campaign Finance.
