Mayor Vincent C. Gray to Cooperate With the House Oversight Committees Investigation of Sulaimon Brown Allegations

Media Contacts

(WASHINGTON) In response to the House Oversight Committee’s investigation of the Sulaimon Brown allegations, Mayor Vincent C. Gray reiterated his position that he welcomes any investigation into the matter. He previously requested the District of Columbia Attorney General to investigate the Brown allegations and said he would fully cooperate with that investigation and any others arising out of these allegations. That request was made on March 6, the day that the allegations appeared in the Washington Post.

Mayor Gray believes that there are sufficient investigative bodies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, addressing and responding to Mr. Brown's allegations. Congressional involvement is not likely to illuminate any additional issues or information.

Although the Mayor, in his support for the autonomy of the District of Columbia, does not encourage congressional oversight of city matters, he and his administration will cooperate fully with this investigation.
