An argument for a change in Sacremento

From the LA Times:

Sexual harassment allegations continued to roil the California political landscape Monday, as one Democratic legislator announced his immediate resignation and another was stripped of key posts by his colleagues.

The dramatic developments set the stage for the first legislative examination of the issue since it engulfed the state Capitol six weeks ago. The focus on sexual harassment — propelled by high-profile allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and the #MeToo social media movement — began with an open letter from more than 140 women denouncing a “pervasive” culture of misconduct in state government. The missive did not identify any legislators or others accused of misbehavior.

What is it with the Super Majority (Democrat) Legislature? What does its leadership have in common?

In the weeks since, women came forward with allegations of inappropriate behavior by both Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra and state Sen. Tony Mendoza.

Bocanegra (D-Pacoima) submitted his resignation and Sen. Tony Mendoza  (D-Artesia) was stripped of his Committee assignments. What do these folks have in common?

Legislators in California make over $104,000.00 per year plus expenses. What they need is true Term Limits, reduced legislative days, and a minimum salary based upon reasonable expenses during that short legislative period.
