Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown declined to comment a day after the feds charged her ex-campaign manager with wire fraud, but said she intends to remain in office.
“We all know that anytime there is a federal investigation going on it is quite inappropriate to comment. So my response to that is no comment,” Reynolds Brown said.
John McDaniel is accused of stealing about $100,000 from Reynolds Brown’s political action committee. McDaniel was also sighted in a report released by the Ethics Board which slapped Reynolds Brown with a record $48,834 fine for a series of campaign finance violations.

Reynolds Brown would not answer questions as to whether the feds have contacted her.
