Ed Rendell listens during a news conference at City Hall in Philadelphia. Prosecutor Christopher Mattei said Monday, July 22, 2013 at the opening of a federal theft trial that Thomas improperly charged $80,000 to a tribe-issued credit card for a limousine to shuttle his mother to doctor's appointments. The charges in question were made on a tribe-issued American Express card between 2007 and 2009. Thomas has pleaded not guilty to one count of theft from an Indian tribal organization and two counts of theft concerning an Indian tribal government receiving federal funds.
