A report released Thursday finds no criminal activity by D.C. Council member Jim Graham, who formerly served on the Washington Metro Transit Authority board, reports the Associated Press.
However, the report does say he committed "a clear violation" of Metro's standards of conduct when he offered to support a developer's bid for the city's lottery contract in exchange for the developer's withdrawal from a real estate project around a Metro station.
Graham made the offer during a 2008 meeting with developer Warren Williams. The offer was rejected. Ultimately, Williams' group did not win the lottery contract, and the Metro project was never built.
Graham told AP he would not comment until he had a chance to read the report.
