State Sen. Ronald Calderon, D-Montebello, is taking a paid leave of absence while he fights federal corruption charges. Sen. Roderick Wright, D-Inglewood, has been convicted on eight felony counts of perjury and voter fraud. Neither man has been forced to resign his office at this time. What should happen next?
Both men should immediately be removed from the Legislature. We shouldn’t have criminals holding political office.
Both men should be allowed to retain their office until they are sentenced for their crimes. That’s called due process.
What does it matter? Politicians are always breaking the law. If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying.
