Harry Thomas Jr. will resign because he can't beat the tax charges. Yes, unless you are Marion Barry, don't mess with the IRS.
His staff will need to find new employment in this tough economy and so the question on my mind is what now? Followed by who will replace him? Just cause he f'ed up doesn't mean there isn't stuff in Ward 5 that needs doing.
Well HTJ isn't the only councilmember with problems, just the only one (who isn't Marion Barry) who had federal tax problems, who has to answer for himself. I am hoping that this will lead to a greater examination of the plethora of DC non-profits "that have been on the city dole to [do whatever] have been "stealing our money.""
