Santa Cruz Restaurant O'mei Closes After Indybay Article

by Swift Justice
O'mei Restaurant in Santa Cruz has closed "for now," a week after an investigative article on Indybay by Lynda Carson exposed the owner as a supporter of David Duke, the former Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Roger F. Grigsby, O'mei's owner and founding chef, gave $500 to David Duke’s U.S. Senate campaign in 2016. People were rightly outraged.
From Thomas Leavitt:

Wow. O'mei is now closed. Bet the owner now regrets his contribution to the David Duke 2016 campaign for U.S. Senate. I feel sorry for his employees though, they paid the price for his obnoxious politics and views. I saw another post on Nextdoor saying he harassed a professor, Dr. Omosupe, at Cabrillo about her social justice oriented English curriculum, so this seems par for the course.


And here I had been not going for a long, long time because of how my family was treated. I guess some things don't change.


Maybe if they had paid attention to her English class, they wouldn't have put an apostrophe into a possessive its.


I feel sorry for those who worked there. I don't feel sorry for him. He got called on his shit and now he's ostensibly blaming the "fake news media." Sound familiar?

BTW - that "slanderous internet rumor" is, of course, publicly-accessible data. If he showed some integrity and 'fessed up, he'd be in a much better place right now.


Justice took its damn time. A friend made me stop going there almost thirty years ago. He advertised on Rush Limbaugh. Seems almost quaintly sinful by today's standards.
