When MedStar Health executives received an email from the office of D.C. Council member Harry Thomas Jr. seeking a charitable donation in late 2007, officials said they had little reason to question whether Mr. Thomas' charity was real.
"There was even a flier for a holiday party for children," said Jean Hitchcock, corporate vice president for public affairs at MedStar, which runs Washington Hospital Center in Mr. Thomas' council ward. "To us, this was about helping underprivileged children in the area, so we decided to make the contribution."
In a phone interview, Ms. Hitchcock said the fact that the Team Thomas solicitation included a 501(c)3 identification, referring to the Internal Revenue Service code governing tax-exempt groups, suggested that it indeed was a tax-exempt organization.
