Is the Ridley-Thomas family empire crumbling before our very eyes? Sebastian Ridley-Thomas, son of LA County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas (MRT) was under investigation for sexual harassment, at the time of his abrupt departure from the State Assembly, according to the LA Times (LAT). What LAT’s failed to report is the evidence against Ridley-Thomas that overwhelmingly proves his guilt. Local Black newspapers are silent on this issue and the campaign donation to USC, most likely due to the amount of advertising funds Daddy Ridley-Thomas pumps into their respective businesses. LAT is also presenting overwhelming evidence that the Ridley-Thomas’ are engaged in money laundering.
The Times is reporting money raised from MRT’s annual Juneteenth Fundraiser was diverted to a newly created consulting firm, Millenial Advisors, that is owned by Sebastian. Sebastian’s firm also collected $27,000 for work done on the Gavin Newsom campaign. Images of Newsom hobnobbing in the Black community featured MRT. Sebastian was nowhere to be seen. Are the companies Sebastian is “running” actually a front for his father? Is the companies objective to bring MRT to the table to deliver the Black vote? MRT is still promoting the embattled think tank at the heart of the USC scandal on his personal twitter page, not Sebastian.
Insiders share with 2UrbanGirls that the sexual harassment claims center around love letters written by Sebastian, to the uninterested woman and indecent exposure to the other.
By all accounts, Sebastian has earned more than $200k in less than six months of his resignation from the Senate. Pictures on his Facebook page shows he has lost a considerable amount of weight. Stress is a helluva drug.
