This week's insider is Assemblyman Roger Hernández, D-West Covina, who represents the 48th Assembly District, leads the Assembly Labor and Employment Committee, and faces the occasional legal scrap. The Fair Political Practices Commission is investigating whether there was money laundering in Hernández's 2010 campaign. And in 2012, a Contra Costa County jury found Hernández not guilty of driving under the influence when Concord police stopped him in March of that year.
