Ward 5 Council-member Harry "Hustleman" Thomas, Jr. today issued the following statement regarding the settlement agreement he has reached with the Office of the Attorney General:
"Serving as the Councilman for Ward 5 residents is my greatest honor. In an effort to continue to focus on my most important goals – improving the lives of my constituents in Ward 5 and the residents of Washington, DC — I have agreed to a settlement. I feel this is in the best interest of the city.
I have committed my life to teaching life skills to children through sports and athletic competition. The discipline and strenuous rigors that I teach through coaching and mentoring were lacking in the management of the organization.
As I have stated before, the allegations in the Attorney General's complaint about there being no service provided and a purposeful misuse of any funds are not true. That is why the settlement does not have any agreement of wrongdoing.
It is not uncommon for grantees, including DC agencies receiving federal funds, to have expenditures disallowed. It is my desire to move forward with the disposition of this matter in a way that will cause the least disruption to my family and my constituency, and that will save the DC government and its citizens the time and expense of litigation, as well.
I appreciate the trust the citizens have placed in me during these allegations. I have used my role as council-member to tend to the needs and interests of those who I have the privilege to serve. These actions are being taken to ensure that the trust the public has placed in me is maintained and honored."
Can I translate just what the motherfucker said for you? Here it goes...
"I got caught stealing! So what? I will hustle little cash here and there and pay it back. If niggers in DC reelected Marion Barry after all that shit he'd done, I am sitting mighty pretty motherfucker. Most of my fellow crook colleagues are not going to force me out of office, maybe couple of those white ones because they're racist. You retards in ward 5 don't forget to send your money and vote for me suckers!
P.S. I heard that moron Mad Cabbie is talking shit about me, don't worry I will fix that big idiot up. I am going to rob his ass at gunpoint and if I get caught, I will just return the money to his sorry ass and admit for no wrongdoing and I will be set free. Maybe I will find a way to squeeze some cash out of that DC Taxicab Medallion bill I have introduced."
When is the FBI going to start criminal investigation of councilman Harris Thomas Jr?
Please don't forget the homeless,
