Read: New Team Thomas Subpoena

True to his word, Attorney General Peter Nickles' office has issued another subpoena related to Ward 5 Councilmember Harry Thomas Jr.'s youth sports non-profit, Team Thomas, with this one asking for a lot more details on the nonprofits finances.

LL asked Thomas' attorney Fred Cooke Jr. for a response. But Cooke said he hadn't seen it, and suggested the fact that LL had a copy of the subpoena before he did was proof that Nickles is running a negative P.R. campaign instead of a legitimate investigation. Indeed, Nickles' email blast even included a copy to LL's boss, who probably has no immediate plans to write about Team Thomas.

Anyway, Nickles says the new subpoena is to help him determine whether or not to sue Thomas for soliciting contributions without a license. The deadline for the requested request is next Wednesday at 4 p.m. Start the clock.

    THIS IS NOTHING BUT ANOTHER VERSION OF "GRAY'S FENCE"! ANYTHING TO GET THE FOCUS OFF OF THE SOON TO BE WORST MAYOR WDC EVER HAD.

    WHY DIDNT HE GO AFTER MOTEN? OR ANY OTHER ENTITY THAT HAVE QUESTIONABLE PRACTICES?

    HOW LONG BEFORE HIS LEASE EXPIRES ON HIS DC RESIDENCY? DOES IT COINCIDE WITH THE END OF FENTY'S TERM? PETER NICKLES IS SOME SHIT THE SOONER HE GOES AWAY AND STOP COSTING THE CITY MONEY WITH BULLSHIT ASS LAWSUITS AND FAKE ASS SETTLEMENTS THE BETTER THE CITY WILL BE.

    Where was this breakneck speed on the (FOIA)request, this is bullshit like noodlez said, all of a sudden this lynch mob mentality is developing when Nickles plays his flute. Stop acting like chumps, this is basic con 101, bait and switch,as long as he has folk focused on this bull you aren't looking at his inexcusable lapses in judgement, get his old decrepid ass on the road to Great Falls, I'm sick of him.

    Karma...

    When you treat others wrong, wrong comes back to you. I don't wish Harry any bad, but he has done people wrong and what goes around comes around.

    noodlez, Anothernative
    Happy T-Day. The turkey's on the smoker. Life is good.
    Speaking of smoking turkeys: Thomas admits he got $200K worth of money and he's provided no records for who gave it to him or who he gave it to. He says it went to developing sports for kids, and admits some of it went to personal trips to Las Vegas, and other vacation destinations.
    Yeah, sure. Nickels is totally crazy for calling it a slush fund. There's nothing to see here except smoke. And turkeys.
    Bon Appetit.

    Anothernative perfectly articulates what Harry Thomas is hoping for. That Thomas can run out the clock while Nickles is packing up.

    Thomas is praying that Gray's new AG will look the other way. Maybe its a stretch, but I'm wondering if Anothernative is Harry Thomas in real life.

    Just Saying -

    The DC citizenry is experiencing its own “Tea Party” which was signaled by the ouster of the grinning cheese-monkey fenty. The Mayor-elect will have no choice in pursuing not only this matter, but living up to his proclaimed banner of “Character, Leadership, Integrity.” It appears the citizens are taking themselves seriously.

    Why can't the Attorney General focus on the Ron Moton free money, ie, how he got it without submitting grant or contract applications. Yes he knows about it.
