D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray is encouraging the D.C. office of campaign finance investigating of allegations that Gray’s campaign illegally converted cash contributions into money orders.
A poll out today by the Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation shows Mayor Gray's popularity has taken a big dip since his victory over Adrian Fenty.
40 percent of voters surveyed say they hold a negative view of Gray, that's a 24- point jump from a poll taken during last summer's contest for mayor.
The percentage of voters holding a positive view of Gray dropped 13 points, from 60 percent to 47 percent.
It's clear a series of scandals affecting Gray and several members of the D.C. Council are starting to take their toll. More than half of those polled say they believe corruption in the city government is a "big problem".
