Bennett Rushkoff, chief of the attorney general’s Public Advocacy Section, sent Thomas a letter Thursday requesting information on “Team Thomas” by Tuesday or risk a subpoena.

The non-profit, which Thomas bills as an organization for social change, youth and senior development, is not registered with the Internal Revenue Service or in good standing with city regulators. District Republican have accused Thomas of using the organization as a "slush fund."
