The Leslie Brodie Report Suspends Journalistic Inquiry into Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Donna Lucas, Tony Haymet Amid Untimely Death of Marty Africa’s Beloved Son — Matthew Africa

Matthew Africa, RIP

On November 15, 2012 Amid conflicting reports and unanswered questions, a journalistic inquiry was launched by TLR into events surrounding San Diego-based Scripps Institution of Oceanography (“SIO”), and directors Tony Haymet, Donna Lucas, and Marty Africa.

According to the East Bay Express, “On September 3, legendary Bay Area DJ Matthew Africa was tragically killed in a car accident while returning from Yosemite with his wife. The death sent shockwaves through the Bay Area DJ community, where Africa had been a mainstay for decades, and reverberated through the blogosphere. Local and national outlets covered his passing. Clearly, Africa was a man who touched a lot of people on a lot of different levels.”

Richard Blum 

UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA’s SCRIPPS INSTITUTION OF OCEANOGRAPHY: Richard Blum — Regent of the University of California and husband of United States Senator from California Dianne Feinstein, operative Donna Lucas, Marty Africa (alleged paramour of James Brosnahan – self proclaimed “mastermind behind the Democratic Party” / mastermind-legal counsel to CaliforniaALL / Voice of OC Director ) and University of California Scripps Institution of Oceanography’s deposed marine researcher turned financier — Tony Haymet of CleanTECH / Pegasus Capital / Phillips & Associate

Accoding to Patterson Irrigator “Africa was heading northbound in his 2001 Volkswagen Beetle on Highway 33 just north of West Stanislaus Road at about 2:45 p.m. Sunday when he veered off the road for unknown reasons, according to a CHP report. His Beetle hit shoulder gravel, steered back onto the highway and spun in a clockwise direction and into the southbound lane before striking a 2000 Peterbilt driven by Hector Alvarez, 23, of Newman, according to the CHP. Africa was pronounced dead at the scene from injuries while his passenger, Ha Le Cow, 38, of Berkeley was taken by air ambulance to Doctors Medical Center for treatment of what was described as major injuries.”

Consequently, TLR has suspened the above mentioned inquiry, which will resume in January of 2013.

  • Another round of construction stimulus? 2020/05/25
    Today, they say that some 42% of those jobs where people were laid off will not return anytime soon. Much like the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act provided billions for shovel ready projects, it may happen again. But will the judicial council drop the ball again and refuse the money AGAIN? Probably. They dislike the […]
  • The number of county courts open today should be zero. 2020/03/19
    Social isolation and maintaining a six foot distance from each other is critical to flattening the curve. It’s entirely irresponsible to require in-person appearances of anyone when social isolation cannot be maintained. Any court requiring people to appear is issuing the equivalent of a death sentence for some and a sickness sentence for others. That’s […] […]
  • Give more money to the Judicial Council for Court Construction? Have we gone mad in Sacramento? 2019/09/06
    Below is a judicial branch synopsis from a legislative analysis of infrastructure needs for the state. I think it is prudent to point out that the judicial council only feigns adhesion to fraud, waste and abuse laws and actually worked aggressively to weaken the laws pertaining to judicial branch whistleblowers. They did this by creating […]
  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]
  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]
