“I’m Not Worried One Bit”

Disgraced former Ward 5 Councilmember Harry Thomas Jr., in October 23, 2011, Washington Post profile by Tim Craig: "I have good lawyers and people who deal with the legal process, and I am confident through the legal process I will be vindicated ...  My job now is to assure that the citizens of Ward 5 continue to get their fair share, and that is what I continue to do."

D.C. Council Chairman Kwame "Fully Loaded" Brown, in June 3 Washington Post profile by Tim Craig: “I’m not worried one bit. ... I am just 100 percent focused on doing what I am doing.”

LL's advice for other D.C. government officials facing federal investigations: Stay away from Tim Craig!

    DC has had its glory days in the 70's and 80's, it is gone now. Glory days consisted of blacks who cared for each other and who cared for the black child. It also consisted of the black civil rights era.
    How can top level career blacks think that if a place gets rid of poorer blacks that they are not next. So stupid!!!
    Any place that abuses poor blacks will suffer the way DC will.

    @washingtoo DC's glory days are ahead of it. As gentrification continues it is possible that even wards 7 and 8 will be civilized. Cannot wait.
