UDC Board Booted Jeff Thompson in 2010

Jeff Thompson, the man in the middle of a federal investigation into Mayor Vince Gray's 2010 mayoral campaign, was booted off the University of the District of Columbia's fundraising foundation about a year and a half ago.

Thompson, a UDC alum, served as president of the schools' Foundation Inc. for a number of years before the UDC's Board of Trustees voted unanimously to remove him in December of 2010, according to school spokesman Alan Etter.

"The perception at the time that nothing was really moving forward with the foundation," says Etter. "Nothing was really happening."

A call to Thompson's lawyer wasn't immediately returned.

    Correction to #4. Clarence Thomas answered questions of Congress during confirmation. There is a stark difference. You call CP an organ with "reporters"? Now that is something to LOL about.

    Clarence answered questions to Congress not reporters. A clear difference.
