Sulaimon Brown with reporters outside the D.C. Council room in April. He is finally expected to cooperate with the council's investigation into his allegations against the Mayor Vincent Gray campaign.

Brown's claim that he was paid and promised a job by Mayor Vincent Gray's campaign team during the race has spurred several investigations, including one by the council.

But until now, Brown has avoided participating in the council's probe.

With his knack for showing up at press conferences and political events, and willingness to offer up interviews and sound bytes, it seemed for a while the only people in D.C. who couldn't find Sulaimon Brown were the ones paid by the council to do so: the process servers trying to serve Brown with a subpoena.

But the council eventually turned to the courts for help, and Brown told a judge Tuesday he will cooperate with the council's investigation and testify next Monday.

Brown says federal investigators have warned him not to talk about aspects of the investigation, he says he will not hold anything back during his testimony before the council.

"There is nothing that I am going to say to the city council that I haven't said to federal investigators, and I am looking forward to my day at the council," says Brown.

Brown also said he would bring evidence to back up his claims but wouldn't give any more details. Mayor Gray has denied any knowledge of either cash payments or a promise of a job.

The hearing is scheduled for Monday, June 6, at 1 p.m.
