WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- This morning Mayor Vincent Gray is waking up to new allegations of impropriety linked to his 2010 election campaign.
According to a new report from the Washington Post, Mayor Gray's 2010 campaign obtained a database with the names of nearly 6,000 public housing residents it targeted in get-out-the-vote efforts. The Post article goes on to state the database appears to be an unauthorized use of private government information.
In a statement Mayor Gray says such information wasn't needed because of his already established contacts in the Public housing community. Meanwhile 9 News Now has learned that Mayor Gray is meeting privately this week with leaders of the Ward five democrats.
Ward five has a wealth of middle class African American voters. The chairman of the Ward five democrats confirms Council chairman Phil Mendelson will also be at the meeting.
The meeting comes after a Washington Post Poll shows a majority of DC voters feel the Mayor should step down because of a shadow campaign that spent more than $650,000 to help him get elected.
