Nathan listens to a press conference given by Mayor Vincent Gray Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at the Wilson Building in Washington, D.C. in which they mayor told the media that despite the various controversies surrounding his administration he intends to continue business as usual. He did say there was precedent for asking Councilman Harry "Tommy" Thomas Jr. to step down from his position as chairman of the Economic Development Committee, but said that he leaves it up to the council to make a decision about that. Nathan brought charges against Councilman Thomas for allegedly funneling some $300,000 in funds earmarked for youth sports programs to his own business, as well as using $80,000 in private donations to pay for his personal vehicle.
