Mayor Gray Releases Audit Of Transition Costs

More than a year after he was sworn into office, Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) has released a detailed accounting of who contributed to his transition and how he spent the money, including more than $100,000 in payments to two men at the center of some of the mayor's campaign and hiring controversies.

The audit, conducted at Gray's request by Benjamin Associates LLC, shows the DC One City Fund collected just under $1 million to pay for Gray's inauguration and staff costs following the November 2010 general election.

The bulk of the money, about $714,000, was spent paying vendors who helped produce Gray's inaugural ball at the Walter E. Washington Convention after he was sworn in on Jan. 1, 2011.
