And now, a story about corruption, cronyism, pay-for-play politics, high profile firings — not to mention the FBI and an investigation by a congressional committee. The cast of characters includes the recently elected D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray and one of his opponents in last year's Democratic primary, Sulaimon Brown. Brown, who has a history of run-ins with the law, says the Gray campaign paid him to stay in the race and attack the incumbent mayor Adrian Fenty. In exchange, he says, he was promised a senior post in the Gray administration. A promise that Brown says was not kept. Mayor Gray denies all of it. Robert Siegel talks with the Washington Post's D.C. political reporter Nikita Stewart for more.
