    Why would Gray endorse her?

    After Gray beat her hero in 2010, she and the rest of the "green team" orchestrated a write-in campaign for Fenty. They got 27,000 votes in the general election on that lame effort.

    In a televised debate this year, she said she would "vote" for Catania if she lost the primary.

    Gray needs to tell her to "kick rocks"!!
