Investigative reporter Nikita Stewart talked about her Washington Post article on Washington, D.C., (D.C.) business leader Jeffrey Thompson “"The Governor of D.C.: The Rise of Jeffrey E. Thompson and the Fall That Has Rattled District Politics.” Stewart wrote that Thompson is alleged to have contributed more than $653,000 to a shadow campaign for D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray’s 2010 election. She detailed how the Gray campaign paid Sulaimon Brown, a fellow candidate, to harass and verbally attack incumbent Mayor Adrian Fenty during debates, and how investigation into these practices led to the discovery of the alleged shadow campaign. She discussed the role of Ronald Machen, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia who is investigating Mr. Thompson’s ties to Vincent Gray’s campaign. In addition, she traced Thompson’s rise to prominence in D.C. business, social, and political circles. close
