L.A. County supervisor gives his side of the story

Apr 28, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
Mark Ridley-Thomas, in a face-to-face meeting in his office, explains why he used $25,000 in taxpayer money for a spot in ‘Who’s Who in Black Los Angeles.’

L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas greeted me warmly Monday afternoon, even though I'd come to hear him explain why he used $25,000 in taxpayer money to buy a place in "Who's Who in Black Los Angeles." I wanted to ask him whether his decision to buy the spread had anything to do with the fact that the book's associate publisher has made campaign donations to the supervisor and is a longtime ally.
