Sen. Roderick Wright
Major issues facing the Legislature, including a water bond and reshaping the state’s rainy day fund, can be addressed this year despite the loss of Democrats’ supermajority.
California state Sen. Roderick Wright was convicted Tuesday of perjury and voter fraud for falsely claiming he lived in an apartment in the district he represents when he actually lives elsewhere.
The first black mayor of Inglewood and former state Senator Edward Vincent died Friday. He was 78.
A grand jury indictment handed up last Sept. 13 charged Wright with two counts of perjury by declaration, one count of filing a false declaration of candidacy and five counts of fraudulent voting.
