The indictment alleges Ridley-Thomas received substantial benefits from the university in exchange for the politician's support of contracts while he served on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.

Man!!!

He was a young city councilman when I worked for Los Angeles in the late 80's until the mid 90's. This sounds like some New Orleans type stuff with former Congressman William Jefferson and his family.  I'm sure folks started asking questions when his son became a professor at USC's School of Social Work without a graduate degree.  I'm sure he jumped a lot of heads to get that position.

I guess that gets completely ignored when it comes to making money and helping family.
