Senator Joel Anderson discusses Federal Corruption in California

Comment by truth on May 14, 2014 at 12:46am
Last week, Senate Democrats voted down a Republican resolution to expel state Sen. Roderick Wright (D), who was convicted of eight felony counts of voter fraud and perjury on Jan. 28. Wright was first indicted in 2010 on charges that he lied on his voter registration form and candidate filings and committed voter fraud in five elections.

State Sen. Ronald Calderon (D), who has been indicted on federal corruption charges for allegedly accepting almost $100,000 in bribes, meals and golf outings, including $88,000 in bribes from an undercover FBI agent, last week began a leave of absence to fight the charges.

Federal agents raided Calderon’s Sacramento offices last June. He has pleaded not guilty to 24 charges and released on bond.

Both senators will receive taxpayer-funded paychecks during their absences. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/govbeat/wp/2014/03/03/felony-al...
