D.C. Council Chairman and mayoral candidate Vincent Gray is calling on the FBI is investigate whether there is any truth to claims that some city residents were offered jobs if they voted for Mayor Adrian Fenty.
Gray says he's "deeply concerned" about claims from some residents, who say they were promised jobs paying $100 a day if they voted for Fenty. Gray's campaign says they will ask the FBI and D.C.'s Board of Elections and Ethics to investigate.
But Fenty dismisses the claims of vote-buying saying there weren't enough "specifics."
"From what I have been briefed on there are no specific people who have been alleged to do anything wrong. If there are, get in touch and we'll do an investigation," says Fenty.
He says all campaign workers and volunteers have had what he called "extensive" training and had to sign a code of conduct saying they "would not offer or provide anything of value to encourage or induce that person to vote."
