D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray fired his chief of staff Wednesday, moments before she was scheduled to testify before a D.C. Council committee on why some members of the administration were being paid salaries that exceeded the city’s legal limits.

Gray (D) said he requested Gerri Mason Hall’s resignation because she was becoming a “distraction,” and personnel matters were “overshadowing the work of the government.”

“I have decided this is the best direction for the city,” Gray said. “I requested, and she accepted, her resignation.”
