Vincent Orange: Feds Didn’t Find Anything Wrong With Campaign

Vince Gray entered the mayor's race Monday with the threat of a federal investigation of his last campaign still hanging over him, but one of his rivals claims that he's not under a similar threat. At-Large Councilmember and mayoral hopeful Vincent Orange declared that federal investigators' questions about his 2011 at-large campaign won't result in charges.

In an afternoon appearance on WAMU's Kojo Nnamdi Show, Orange said he's not facing criminal charges, despite subpoenas of his 2011 at-large campaign and one of his campaign donors. "Nothing has come of that," Orange said.

Orange, whose campaign received suspicious money orders from straw donors connected to alleged shadow campaign financier Jeff Thompson, said he hasn't provided help to investigators about any colleagues and/or rivals: "They have not asked me anything about anybody else's campaign."

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office declined to comment.

    Wishful thinking. Debonis reported he'd reviewed recent subpoenas seeking records of donations, etc to Orange/his campaign. Plainly, the feds are actively investigating Orange. And don't forget that several of One City's shadow campaign operatives went to work for Orange after One City got elected.

    ....And Thompson donated to large sums of money to Bowser, Catania and several other pols in and out of town.

    Investigate all and write about all or stfu about Orange and Gray....The progressives really suck in DC but what is worse is the natives that kiss their ass and will sell their own mamas to be accepted by the progressives.....

    Bowser will poll higher in ward 3 than in her own ward..... why is that? Because of her ties to Fenty and his bs 4 years as mayor. DC wants and need real politicians that will support everyone, not kiss progressive ass over native ass!!

    Thank you RealDC. Aside from her lack of what it takes to govern and represent ALL OF DC, another reason is her close affiliation with Fenty...I really dislike the color green because of the two of them.
