40th Congressional District

CALIFORNIA | LOCAL
May 22, 1988
Twelve Republicans seek to fill the vacant congressional seat in the county's southwestern 40th District. Because the district is one of the most Republican areas in the nation, it is a foregone conclusion that the Republican who wins nomination June 7 will win the general election in November and go on to Congress. If the voters decide the race on the basis of which Republican is best qualified to represent the district, they will have to send Nathan Rosenberg into the November election.

By now, your paper's erratic editorial policies should generate no real surprise among readers, particularly since The Times remains so out of step with the political mainstream of Orange County. Among the Republican majority here, and a sizable number of Democrats as well, you have become an editorial anachronism. In your Nov. 4 edition, you carried your preferred slate of candidates (practically all Democrats, of course) under a special disclaimer denoting your editorial policy on endorsements.

Jeffrey A. Perlman's recent commentary (July 28) on the causes and consequences of the decision by Interior Secretary Donald P. Hodel to terminate the moratorium on oil drilling in the offshore waters of Orange County was excellent but not quite complete. And the comments (Aug. 4) by Assemblyman Gil Ferguson (R-Newport Beach) and the letters to the editor underscore that omission. The other factor which made it almost a foregone conclusion that coastal Orange County would get the brunt of the drilling is that Rep. Robert E. Badham (R-Newport Beach)

Democratic congressional candidate Lida Lenney on Monday night called upon Republican C. Christopher Cox to apologize for sending voters in the 40th Congressional District a pair of so-called "hit pieces" against two of his GOP primary opponents. But Cox, a former senior associate White House counsel and one of the leading candidates in the race, declined, saying he had nothing to apologize for.

An attempt by a follower of political extremist Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr. to overturn an election recount was thrown out of court in Santa Ana on Wednesday, temporarily ending his bid to replace Bruce W. Sumner as the Democratic nominee in southern Orange County's 40th Congressional District. "We'll probably appeal," Art Hoffmann said after Superior Court Judge John C.

Calling five-term Rep. Robert E. Badham (R-Newport Beach) a congressman "who doesn't care," Democrat Bruce Sumner told aircraft workers in Irvine on Thursday that Badham had missed votes or voted against the Reagan Administration's positions recently on such key issues as the tax bill, immigration, the budget and defense spending.

C. Christopher Cox, a virtual unknown in Orange County before he left his job as a lawyer in the White House to run for Congress, took a decisive early lead Tuesday night in the bitterly contested race for the Republican nomination in the heavily GOP 40th District. In early returns, Cox, 35, of Newport Beach, was outpolling the two other leading candidates in the race--Irvine Councilman C. David Baker, 35, and Newport Beach businessman Nathan Rosenberg, 36.

Lida Campbell Lenney was in her element, talking to a classroom of students. But this time, the former schoolteacher's subject matter was heresy, or at least what amounts to heresy in Orange County's politically conservative 40th Congressional District. "I'm a card-carrying member of the ACLU," she told the civics class at Tustin High School. "George Bush seems to think that's unpatriotic. I think that's very patriotic."

The final chapter in one of the most bizarre political cases in Orange County history comes to a close today as the 6-month probation of former Irvine City Councilman C. David Baker, once a shining prospect in the local Republican party, officially ends. Baker, 36, has performed in excess of 500 hours of community service for forging a $48,000 check during his failed bid for Congress last year. In September, Baker pleaded guilty to one count of felony forgery. But Orange County Superior Court Judge Myron S. Brown later reduced the charge to a misdemeanor, ordering Baker to perform an unspecified amount of community service and placing him on probation.
