AURAL PLEASURE: The LAT's John Myers, Melanie Mason, and Liam Dillon conveve for the California Politiics Podcast. Topics include resisting the resistance, the Sacramento police shooting, and the lightning round.  

Happy Saturday! The rain has generally moved out of Sacramento after that loud storm last night.

The streets of Sacramento are quiet after this weeks protests. The next one appears to be 3pm Tuesday afternoon "free barbecue," again at the District Attorney's office (901 G Street), followed by 3pm Wednesday and Thursday. Their Facebook page states "She thinks she is in the clear but we are going to be at her office every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday till CHARGES ARE FILED!!! AND IF SHE DOESN'T FILE CHARGES, WE WILL LIGHT IT UP FOR THE NEXT DA!"

As I write this morning, I'm watching Fruitvale Station about the 20009 Oscar Grant shooting in Oakland.

HARASSMENT: The LAT's Patrick McGreevy reports:

A top legislative staff member has resigned during an investigation that substantiated allegations he made sexually inappropriate comments to two female state employees in violation of state policies, according to internal documents and a letter to Wilson from Debra Gravert, the chief administrative officer for the Assembly.

The investigation looked at sexual harassment allegations against Rodney Wilson, who was chief of staff to Assemblyman Tom Daly (D-Anaheim) until Wilson resigned Jan. 2 to become a state lobbyist. One female state employee told Assembly personnel investigators that on the last day of session in September that Wilson came into an unidentified state office after hours and appeared intoxicated.  

Five more cases were released on Thursday, report Alexei Koseff and Taryn Luna in the Bee.
