Harry Thomas Jr. Returns to the DMV

LL's getting old. What else can he think now that former Councilmember Harry Thomas Jr., sentenced to three years in prison in 2012 for stealing from kids, has served almost his entire term?

With a little more than six months left on his sentence, the former Ward 5 councilmember was transferred over the weekend to a Maryland halfway house, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons' website. A Bureau of Prisons spokesman declined to comment last week on the location of Thomas, who is expected to be released on March 22, 2015.

Previously, Thomas was incarcerated in an Alabama prison that he briefly shared with similarly felonious Councilmember Michael Brown.

This isn't Thomas' first return to the D.C. area since he started living at federal expense. Thomas made a mystery visit to the District while still in custody late last year, during which he reportedly visited the U.S. Attorney's Office. Meanwhile, one of Thomas' alleged cronies is still awaiting trial and trying to distance himself from his old boss.

    I'm sure he doesn't have the nerve to return to the area to live after he stole from those children.

  • Typical DC BS

    Wonder when he announces he'll be running for his old seat again on the DC Council?

    Council? You mean Mayor!

    @nonnier: LOL. I wouldn't be surprised.

    Now let's talk about a few other corrupt Politicians:
    1. "Shorty" Virginia Gov Bob McDonnell
    2. "Fatty" Chris Christi
    3. "The Lone Star State" Gov Rick Perry
    4. "Left Office Early" Gov Sarah Palin

  • Typical DC BS

    Angelina - guess you went to DC schools? Know what the difference is between Harry Thomas Jr. and the four folks you cite? Only ONE is a convicted felon. Guess which one? Think hard (I know it's difficult).

    I hope that MF is barred for lifetime from setting foot in my city.

    The only difference between Harry Thomas and the other "crooks" referenced in "Angelina's post, is that they were smart enough to know if you are going to be corrupt do it on a large scale. People have a hard time understanding something so large and corrupt. But, to steal from children is very low, low scale. At the end of the day, convicted felon or not, they are all CROOKS!!!

    Maybe his lawyer Karl Racine can give him a job in the Attorney General Office, because he ain't gettin one anywhere else in D.C. government.

    He can have the job of picking up dog poop bags from the trashcans of the dog parks next to the bike lanes. We will design a special tricycle for him to ride about doing his job. He will have a uniform too and a little song will play while he rides about picking dog poop out of the cans.

    What's worse is that he spoke at Elsie Whitlow Stokes' promotion exercise earlier this month. Apparently this is a safe haven that holds, him in high regard....a charter school which employs a shady group of characters, from administrators to its educaters. They are presented as a Tier 1 school but there is nothing Tier 1 about it.

    You'd be surprised.
