Sulaimon Brown testifies before a D.C. Council committee in June. Brown has accused the campaign of now-Mayor Vincent Gray of a quid pro quo scheme.

Sulaimon Brown told federal prosecutors Thursday that D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray told him what to say during his campaign against former Mayor Adrian Fenty on the campaign trail last year.

A federal grand jury is investigating Brown's allegations that he was paid by Gray's campaign staff to stay in the race and attack Fenty, and that he was promised a job in the Gray administration. The Associated Press is reporting that Brown told federal investigators that Gray handed him a list of talking points.

Gray has denied wrongdoing and has said he knows nothing about payments to Brown.

If substantiated, Brown's allegations wouldn't appear to constitute a crime, but they suggest that Gray and Brown collaborated closely during last year's Democratic primary.
