Illegal activity inside D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray's campaign was back in the news on Wednesday. Gray's assistant campaign treasurer, Thomas Gore, was in federal court once again.

Gore's attorney, Fred Cooke, asked the judge to set a sentencing date so Gore could get on with his life. Cooke said that Gore had given prosecutors all the information he has to date.

But prosecutors said they needed more time before sentencing Gore as they continue their investigation.

Gore pleaded guilty to his role to pay former Mayoral candidate Sulaimon Brown to verbally attack former D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty during the mayoral campaign.

A judge agreed to the prosecution's request to hold another status hearing in a few months. That hearing is scheduled to take place on March 28.

Mayor Gray was asked to comment about the extended time it was taking for the U.S. Attorney's Office to conduct its investigation. Gray said, "This is a pending investigation. It is inappropriate for me to speak about it."
