As predicted by everyone with a shred of credibility on the subject, the District of Columbia has dropped the charges against Senator Jim Webb's trusted aide Phillip Thompson:
“As I said at the time when this incident occurred, Phillip Thompson is a trusted aide and a fine man. I have great confidence in him.Let the right-wing temper tantrums begin.
“As I also said at the time, I believe that this incident was an inadvertent oversight and I am pleased that the authorities in the District of Columbia have now reached that same conclusion.
“I’m happy that Phillip and his family can now put this incident behind them.”
