Upward Mobility at Cal State LA

 

Happy Friday! Ugh, my router has disappeared. Yup, I've tried rebooting it a couple of times. So, I'm on somebody's crappy Xfinity network this morning (or perhaps it's mine). It started yesterday...I think I'll be ordering a new one. Meanwhile, it's Xfinity and my phone to hopefully get The Nooner out today.

Of course, the news is all about Tony Mendoza's (D-Artesia) resignation from the State Senate. He was going to be voted out by his colleagues, which would have been the first expulsion since 1905. In his angry letter in which he attacks his former housemate Kevin de León, he suggests that he will run for SD32 again this year.

Mendoza has already completed his filing for the June 5 election, as has Rio Hondo CCD trustee Vicky Santana.

Meanwhile, Cristina Garcia (D-Bell Gardens) did pull nomination papers yesterday for re-election to AD58. She continues her voluntary unpaid leave of absence over harassment allegations. One challenger has qualified, and three others have pulled papers.

California Sen. Tony Mendoza resigns under threat of expulsion for sexual harassment

SACRAMENTO — Sen. Tony Mendoza resigned Thursday ahead of a vote to expel him from the Senate. In a letter to his fellow Senators, Mendoza said he refused to participate “in the farcical investigation” and that his resignation is effective immediately. Mendoza, D-Artesia (Los Angeles County) had been on paid leave since Jan. 3. “It is clear that Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León will not rest until he has my head on a platter to convince the MeToo movement on his sincerity in supporting the MeToo cause,” Mendoza wrote in the letter.

The resignation was the culmination of an almost three-month saga that saw the Artesia Democrat stridently deny any improper conduct while accusing his fellow legislators of unfair treatment. He becomes the third state legislator to resign in the wake of allegations that have shaken the state Capitol community.
