CalWatchdog Morning Read – April 25

by CalWatchdog Staff | April 25, 2016 12:32 pm

DV allegations don’t knock chairman off perch, Moody’s down on CA, GOP money dries up, trouble for BART, debate tonight for five of 34 Senate candidates.

Good morning! Happy Monday.

It looks like the lawmaker who is currently under a temporary restraining order from his wife will not face any immediate repercussions in the Assembly, Speaker Anthony Rendon told CalWatchdog on Friday. 

Last week, the two chairwomen of the Women’s Legislative Caucus asked Asm. Roger Hernández, D-West Covina, to step down from his Labor and Employment Committee chairmanship and his other committee assignments while the issue with his wife is being worked out. 

Hernández refused. And Rendon, a Paramount Democrat, said he’s going to wait and see what happens: “If the allegations are more fully validated, I will be prepared to take further action.”

Hernández has been accused of wrongdoing before. And Senate Democratic leadership found itself in similar situations a few years ago. CalWatchdog[1] has more.
