Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

A production crew for "The Daily Show" was spotted late this afternoon under the dome, taping a segment with GOP Assemblyman Tim Donnelly.

A staffer the Twin Peaks Republican would say only that the topic for the interview with the satirical newscast is "direct democracy." It was unclear Wednesday when the segment would air.

This won't be Donnelly's first time appearing on a Comedy Central news show. The former minuteman leader's effort to build a fence at the California-Mexico border was featured on "The Colbert Report" in 2006.

The theme of that segment? "The Difference Makers."
