Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Assemblyman Das Williams chose to report to the Capitol as usual Monday - rather than honeymoon with his bride.

"I'll go on a honeymoon when the budget passes or when we're on track to fix the fiscal crisis," the Santa Barbara Democrat said, smiling.

Williams, 36, married 23-year-old Jonnie Reinhold in what he called a "no frills," family-only ceremony Saturday overseen by his local pastor.

Politics is as responsible as Cupid, perhaps, for bringing the two together.

Williams, a freshman legislator, said he was campaigning for the Assembly seat at a health fair when he met Reinhold, who was giving swine flu shots at the event and works as a community health clinic program developer.

The two dated for about a year before Saturday's wedding, Williams said.
