The mayor of Washington, D.C., whose tenure has been marked by a federal investigation into his 2010 campaign, will seek a second term.
Vincent Gray, a Democrat, walked into the office of the D.C. Board of Elections on Monday and signed up for nominating petitions. As the AP reports, while supporters say he's done a good job guiding an economically prosperous city, four people who worked for his mayoral campaign in 2010 have pleaded guilty to felonies related to a shadow campaign that pumped hundreds of thousands of unreported dollars into an effort to elect him.
Sulaimon Brown, a fringe candidate in that campaign, has alleged that the shadow campaign paid him to remain in the race.
