WASHINGTON (AP) -- The former campaign chair for D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray says she never promised a job to a rival candidate in exchange for attacks on the then-incumbent.
Lorraine Green denied accusations Friday by Sulaimon Brown that she promised a government job to him. Brown says he was offered payments and a job by Green and another Gray campaign aide in exchange for leveling attacks on incumbent Adrian Fenty. No payments have been independently verified, and Green says she did not pay him.
Green says she did not review Brown's resume, interview him or set a salary for him. But she says Gray did offer Brown an opportunity for an interview if he won the race.
Green testified Friday before a D.C. Council probing hiring practices within the Gray administration.
