Sulaimon Brown claims that the campaign of Mayor Vincent Gray engaged him in a quid-pro-quo scheme during the 2010 election season. A grand jury is now investigating those allegations, according to NBC4.

Wearing dark suit and black sunglasses, Brown braved the council for the first time to talk, on the record, about his allegations. It was a hearing that often went off the rails, with Brown routinely arguing with council members, even his dark shades became a point of contention, with Brown refusing to take them off.

But Brown Monday leveled some new, very serious charges, claiming for the first time, that not only did Gray's campaign aides pay him cash, but he says at one event, Gray was there and ordered the pay-off.

Gray has denied Brown’s allegations, and Brown's recollection of events and dates was spotty and his credibility was questioned at times. But Brown did bring copies of the money orders that he says he received from a Gray campaign aide.

While the council completes its probe of the matter, the U.S. Attorneys' Office and a House oversight committee are also looking into the issue.
