Breaking news via Capitol Correspondent:

Sources are saying that Vincent Gray is about to resign as mayor of Washington, DC. The FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office have been investigating Gray’s for possible campaign violations and three of Gray’s campaign aides have pleaded guilty to financial misconduct, including a public-relations executive who admitted this week that she facilitated the use of $650,000 in illicit funds from a district businessman. Three members of the D.C. Council called on the mayor to step down yesterday with one saying Gray is responsible for “massive election fraud.”
