UPDATE: Read an updated obituary here.

Well-known Democratic political consultant Kam Kuwata was found dead Monday in his Venice, Calif. condominium, according to city officials and a family e-mail.

The family e-mail, sent to friends and acquaintances of the 57-year-old Kuwata, said that Los Angeles Police Department officers had found him on the floor of his condo. News reports stated there was no indication of foul play.

Kuwata had helped Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein win election multiple times, and worked on the presidential campaign of the late Sen. Alan Cranston.

"Kam was one of the nicest, most sincere political professional I have ever known," said Mark Kadesh, who formerly served as Feinstein's chief of staff. "He was a political wonk, who loved campaigns."
