WASHINGTON — The list of the top overdraft check writers from California continues to change.
Former Rep. Douglas Bosco (D-Sebastopol) so far leads the list of current and former California congressmen caught up in the House bank scandal with 124 checks totaling $537,985 in overdrafts, according to a list of Democrats leaked to the Washington Times this week.
That same list published by the Washington Times shows former Rep. Tony Coelho (D-Merced) as having had 316 checks totaling $292,603.
The new listing moves former San Diego Democrat Jim Bates into third place. He has admitted writing 89 bad checks totaling $170,686. Other members of the 45-person California delegation have come forward with varying amounts of overdrafts.
