Atkinson said that "Gray presented Mr. Thompson with a 1-page budget for $425,000. He asked Mr. Thompson to pay for a get-out-the-vote campaign. Mr. Thompson agreed."

The charges against Thompson come as Gray seeks re-election against seven challengers in the April 1 Democratic primary.

Gray has not been charged with a crime and has denied any wrongdoing in the 2010 campaign.
