Podcast: Personal Politics

Comments Off

The legislative year is coming down to the final hours, and much of the action has been intense and, in some cases, personal.

We've put out our weekly Capital Notes Podcast a day early, given how many legislative proposals are in limbo and thus might be a done deal by the time tomorrow rolls around. If you listen to this on Friday, the chatter from me and Capitol Weekly's Anthony York may be outdated.

In fact, one element of the week's big political drama is already dated -- the scandal that ended with a legislator's resignation. In the podcast, Anthony says that there had been no formal resignation letter from Assemblymember Mike Duvall (R-Yorba Linda). Anthony was right... until we came out of the studio, when word came that the letter had been submitted (see it here).

Check back for a legislative wrap-up podcast next week.
