Ben Nuckols and Eric Tucker, Breitbart, December 3, 2011

FBI and IRS agents on Friday searched the home of a District of Columbia council member who was accused by the city’s attorney general of diverting more than $300,000 in city funds for personal use.

Nearly two dozen law-enforcement personnel took part in the search of the home of D.C. Councilmember Harry Thomas Jr.

Federal authorities have been investigating Thomas, a Democrat, since at least June, when the District of Columbia attorney general filed a lawsuit accusing him of spending more than $300,000 in city funds on an Audi SUV, vacations and other personal expenses. Thomas agreed to repay the money but did not acknowledge any wrongdoing.

    Philadelphia, Chicago, New York, Boston — all had the worst kind of corrupt, entrenched, Democratic political machines that were, in effect, quasi dynasties. And all of them were, for sure, White.

    But I have to say that the black politcal hustlers of the big cities, mostly in the Northeast and South, have a depth of avarice and aplomb that White politicians could never hope to achieve.
