In less than 24 hours, Harry Thomas Jr. will report to a federal prison camp in Montgomery, Ala., for a three-year stretch. Thomas granted a final interview to Deborah Simmons of the Washington Times, in which he described his final days of freedom — tending to his lawn, spending time with his kids, visiting his father’s grave. He also enjoyed a few Hot Tamales in the course of the chat, which is wise, because they are currently unavailable in the FPC Montgomery commissary.
