The Post's Mike Debonis broke the news that the Feds have formally filed charges against Ward 5 Councilmember Harry Thomas. The Charges are:
1. Theft concerning a program receiving Federal funds;
2. Filing a false tax return.
They claim he stole $353,500, and failed to report $346,000 in income. Also interesting it the allegation that the theft may have started in April of 2007, and continued for almost two years (February 2009). It looks like the majority of the funds were stolen in 2008. Thomas allegedly filed false tax returns for three straight years.
