A former campaign aide to D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray has been sentenced for his role in the troubled 2010 mayoral campaign.
Thomas Gore pleaded guilty last year to illicitly funneling money to a minor mayoral candidate and then destroying evidence of the payments.
The money went to Sulaimon Brown, who regularly attacked then-Mayor Adrian Fenty on the campaign trail.
On Friday, a D.C. judge sentenced Gore to six months in prison, telling the former Gray campaign aide that he failed the residents of the District of Columbia.
Two other people have been charged with crimes related to Gray's 2010 campaign, which benefitted from $653,000 in illegal contributions. Gray has denied knowing of the money.
After serving his prison sentence, Gore will be confined to his home for another six months and have to complete 200 hours of community service.
