"I’m a big fan of Sen. Harris, and I work with her. But she’s brand-new here, so it takes a little bit of time to get to know somebody."

Said Dianne Feinstein, endorsing Biden (L.A. Times):“He has the experience, the drive, he was chairman of [the Senate Judiciary Committee] when I came” to the Senate, Feinstein said Thursday. “I worked with him closely on a number of different things. I have a great respect for his integrity as well as his ability. And I think experience is really important at this particular point, where our world is today.”That's a very bland endorsement, based entirely and openly on the length of her personal...

Leaders needed before state gets any new political party

The Democratic Party didn’t really get off the ground until it found a leader in Thomas Jefferson. Similarly, the Republican Party amounted to almost nothing before Abraham Lincoln put it on the political map. Now, with both major California political parties offering little besides extremism, polls show there’s a widespread desire for a third significant political party here. Emblematic was an election-season survey by the Public Policy Institute of California, which asked the question “In your...

Bipartisan Group Of Senators Requests Leniency For Ex-Staffer Who Lied To FBI

WASHINGTON (AP) — Three high-ranking senators asked a federal judge for leniency on behalf of a former Senate intelligence committee staffer who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, even as the government argues that the ex-staffer “significantly endangered national security” by speaking with reporters.

Congress finally enacts "Paroline fix" that should improve victim restitution in federal child porn cases

Long-time readers may recall regularly blogging here about federal district and circuit opinions struggling to figure out whether and how courts could impose restitution awards/punishments on federal offenders convicted only of downloading child pornography images.  Because the child porn restitution questions produced various splits in the lower courts, the Supreme Court took up and "resolved" these issues in Paroline v. US, No. 12-8561 (Apr. 23, 2014) (available here).  But because Paroline re...

Getting in the Fight for Cultural Engagement

Getting in the Fight for Cultural Engagement U.S.A. –( When we discuss the social stigmatization of the Second Amendment, not to mention efforts at corporate gun control, one thing makes those things easier: The fact that those who seek to take away our Second Amendment rights have allies who have a lot of sway in our pop culture.The NRA is largely off the pop culture battlefield, and that is a mistake.

Big campaign spending for status quo outcome

A few hours before the polls closed on Tuesday, an organization that tracks California political trends reported that an eye-popping $1-plus billion had been spent on campaigns this year. The tally by California Target Book implied that big things were happening. But the vote counts later that day indicated that in California, at least, it was a pretty much status quo election. Those who had been expected to win, Democrats mostly, did win. But even though Democrats flipped at least two congressi...
