OCF Takes No Action on Kwame Brown’s Finances
(Washington Examiner) — The Office of Campaign Finance took no action following a closed hearing Tuesday over irregularities in Council Chairman Kwame Brown’s finance reports from his 2008 campaign for an at-large council seat, nearly two weeks after an audit from the office slammed the reports. OCF spokesman Wesley Williams said there are “still some unresolved issues” and additional hearings will be scheduled, likely for late next week. An audit that was released earlier this month found that Brown didn’t report $133,000 in contributions and $203,000 in expenses. Williams said Dawn Cromer, the treasurer for Brown’s 2008 campaign, spoke at the closed hearing, but would not elaborate on what was discussed. Brown did not attend the hearing. His office referred calls to Fred Cooke, counsel for the campaign. Cooke declined to comment.
