The Los Angeles County district attorney's office has searched two homes in a probe of whether Democratic state Sen. Roderick Wright lives in the district he represents, officials confirmed Monday. David Demerjian, who heads the D.A.'s Public Integrity Division, told The Times that investigators searched two homes early Wednesday morning, but he would not divulge the addresses. One of the homes is in Wright's 25th Senate District and the other is in the neighboring 26th District.

A Los Angeles County grand jury on Thursday unsealed an eight-count felony indictment against state Sen. Roderick Wright (D- Inglewood), accusing him of filing a false declaration of candidacy, voter fraud and perjury beginning in 2007, when he changed his voter registration to run for the Legislature. Wright listed as his residence a home in the district he wanted to represent, but county authorities allege that he did not live there as required by state law. The indictment also alleges that Wright fraudulently voted in five elections in 2008 and 2009.

The campaign manager for Republican 25th District congressional candidate Howard (Buck) McKeon has quit, citing conflicts with another campaign staffer. Rita Garasi, a longtime friend of McKeon who managed his successful 1987 race for Santa Clarita City Council, said she resigned Monday over disagreements with campaign office manager Tammy Thomas. McKeon is among six people seeking the Republican nomination in the 25th Congressional District, which covers northern Los Angeles County.

George A. Kasem, the first Arab American to serve in the House of Representatives, has died at 82. Kasem died Monday of pneumonia at a care facility in Carlsbad.

"Buck" McKeon (R-Santa Clarita). But a spokesman for Strickland said "Tony has the utmost respect" for McKeon and "should he choose to retire, he would plan to run in the 25th District to replace him. " Speculation that McKeon will retire has been building but a spokeswoman said Monday that "Congressman McKeon hasn't made any decisions about 2014.
