Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Mimi_Walters.JPGThe California state senate suspended three lawmakers Friday: Democratic senators Leland Yee and Ron Calderon, who have been accused of corruption, and Rod Wright, who was found guilty by a jury of lying about living in the district he was elected to in 2008.

Residency questions have dogged many legislators, as The Bee noted last month, including Republican Sen. Mimi Walters who appeared at a press conference today following the Senate's suspensions. Capitol Alert asked Walters to clarify where she lives.
