CalWatchdog Morning Read – August 2

by CalWatchdog Staff | August 2, 2016 10:59 am

Good morning! 

After being placed under a three-year restraining order from his wife over domestic violence allegations and subsequently stripped of his committee assignments[1], including a chairmanship, Assemblyman Roger Hernandez has become reclusive.

First, the West Covina Democrat made his official Twitter account private sometime in July, and then on Monday he went on medical leave for a week or two to start the last month of the legislative session.

A spokesperson for the Hernandez did not immediately respond to requests for comment, but both his office and the office of Speaker Anthony Rendon, D-Paramount, confirmed to The Sacramento Bee[2] on Monday that Hernandez requested medical leave that would likely extend through this week and much of next week.

CalWatchdog[3] has more.
