True to his word, Attorney General Peter Nickles‘ office has issued another subpoena related to Ward 5 Councilmember Harry Thomas Jr.’s youth sports non-profit, Team Thomas, with this one asking for a lot more details on the nonprofits finances.
LL asked Thomas’ attorney Fred Cooke Jr. for a response. But Cooke said he hadn’t seen it, and suggested the fact that LL had a copy of the subpoena before he did was proof that Nickles is running a negative P.R. campaign instead of a legitimate investigation. Indeed, Nickles’ email blast even included a copy to LL’s boss, who probably has no immediate plans to write about Team Thomas.
Anyway, Nickles says the new subpoena is to help him determine whether or not to sue Thomas for soliciting contributions without a license. The deadline for the requested request is next Wednesday at 4 p.m. Start the clock.
