Let me make one thing very clear: Raul Bocanegra will not suffer. He will not be jobless and on unemployment. He will not have to reinvent himself. He will not take a blue collar job. What will the Quid Pro Quo be? He has already been promised a soft landing, in a safe six-figure labor union job, or on one of California’s worthless commissions. Sen. Tony Mendoza will also not suffer any real fate. Democrats will circle the wagons, protect their elected members in exchange for future favors, and guarantee soft landings.
The sexual harassment hearing Tuesday in the Assembly Rules Committee was interesting and even enlightening. I must commend Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon for allowing the hearing to take place, and the Rules Subcommittee Sexual Harassment Prevention: Current Policies and Protections and Recommendations for Change committee members for the thorough hearing they held. They clearly were in a no-BS mood, despite being fed some drivel by some Rules HR-type staff. Assemblywoman Laura Friedman, committee Chair, even acknowledged that they may need to “take the policing out of the hands of the Assembly,” in the future. “There is a built-in incentive to protect members of your caucus,” she concluded.
