When is a Politician Truly Non-Partisan?

When does a career politician lose their affiliation to a political party? That's right, when it is a Democrat being charged with a crime. Here is a link to an article about a councilman accused of stealing $300,000 intended to support youth baseball.
D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan has sued Ward 5 Councilman Harry Thomas alleging Thomas directed to his personal use more than $300,000 in city funds meant to support youth baseball in the District.

The lawsuit filed Monday in D.C. Superior Court asks Thomas to pay the cash back and requests damages totalling more than $1 million. It alleges that Thomas spent the cash on an Audi and trips to Las Vegas and Pebble Beach, among other items.
Read the entire article and let me know if you see either "Democrat" or "Republican" anywhere in the article. Since it is a negative story and party affiliation isn't listed you can be certain the crooked politician is a Democrat. I will admit that since this particular crook is a DC politician they may not be aware that there is more than one political party.
