A federal judge has postponed a court appearance for a former campaign aide to D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray.

Eugenia Jeanne Clarke Harris admitted to facilitating a $650,000 shadow campaign to help Gray get elected in 2010. She is one of three former Gray campaign aides to plead guilty to felonies.

Harris admitted to conspiring with District businessman Jeffrey Thompson to funnel the unreported funds into Gray's campaign. The hearing was pushed back to March.

Last week, at a status conference for Thomas Gore, one of the other Gray campaign aides who has pleaded guilty, prosecutors asked the judge not to set a sentencing date because their investigation remains active and Gore is cooperating, which could lead to a reduction in his sentence.

Mayor Gray has not been charged with any wrongdoing.
