Isn’t it great having a photo of him with Commula seated right next to him? Wanna thank that photographer. Job well done.

That picture makes me think of the Eddie Murphy film “The Nutty Professor”. Hercules! Hercules! Hercules!

“He has a doctorate in social ethics from USC”…USC has a lot of ‘splainin’ to do. What exactly is their definition of social ethics? Or did they mean situational ethics? Or maybe they meant unethics.

Mark Ridley-Thomas (b.1954) has been in elected office since 1991: L.A. City Council (CD-8, 1991-2002; CD-10, 2020-present), L.A. County Board of Supervisors (2008-2020), Calif. State Assembly (48th District, 2002-06), Calif. State Senate (2006-08). He was also Chairman of the Democratic Caucus during his time in the state Assembly. Full-on swamp creature.

Oh Oscar, you are so right to call him a “full-on swamp creature.” He is definitely that.

Did you know, show, that M-RT is the _third_ L.A. City Council member to be indicted in 2 years? More are under investigation. And that does not include the 2019 investigation into questionable donations on behalf of Council President NURY Martinez re-election campaign.

Yes, knew about the first two —- but wow, did NOT know about any looming trouble for NURY. Let’s keep our fingers crossed on that one. And may the investigation of any other suspected crooks on the council be fruitful. Never mind that another three members are threatened with recall, as I’m sure you know. (!!!)
