A bill that would pay $620,000 to a former Orange County resident who was wrongly imprisoned for 16 years on murder charges passed the state Senate Thursday night. The unprecedented measure passed 30 to 1 without debate and was returned to the Assembly for routine approval of Senate changes, expected by today, the close of the Legislature's session. The bill then goes to the governor for consideration.

One thing I love is a politician with a sense of humor. Assemblyman Scott Baugh's handlers just sent me a mailer which suggests he wants to get tough with criminals. I can't wait until his next mailer. Maybe it will call on us to support him in his attempt to rid California of campaign fraud! MATTHEW DUGGAN Seal Beach

A major reform that would change the way grand juries do business in California by letting defense attorneys into the proceedings is expected to pass the state Legislature this year over the objections of county prosecutors. The reform was sparked by the traumatic personal experience of Assemblyman Scott Baugh (R-Huntington Beach), who was indicted for alleged criminal campaign finance reporting violations in 1996. Baugh said he wanted to tell his story to the grand jury.

Just as Reagan and Bush claimed to be unaware of what their subordinates were doing with the Iran-Contra affair, so claims Assemblyman Scott Baugh that he knew nothing of what everyone connected to him was up to in the campaign to recall Assemblywoman Doris Allen. This is why the American public was not behind the Clinton prosecution. Not that we approved of his affairs, it's just that the GOP was calling his cheap two-bit affairs high crimes while they routinely subvert core American beliefs on fairness and justice with their political actions and covert operations and think nothing of it. Now Baugh is a hero for just stating he knew nothing of what was going on around him. Just as Reagan was a great president for claiming ignorance.

I enjoyed reading Haydee V. Tillotson's Aug. 23 letter of response to the false and politically motivated attacks aimed at her and Dist. Atty. Mike Capizzi by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) regarding Assemblyman Scott Baugh's alleged violations of state election laws. Tillotson responded to Rohrabacher's accusations with facts and without lowering herself to name-calling and character assassination (more than could be said of Rohrabacher). Rohrabacher's wife, Rhonda Carmony, and others have pleaded guilty to state election law violations committed during Baugh's first campaign.

What's with the Pepsodent-bright smiles of Assemblyman Scott Baugh and his aides, Rhonda Carmony and Maureen Werft? ("Booking Mugs for Baugh, Aides Released," June 15.) These are supposed to be booking mugs? C'mon, these slick Orange County Republicans have pulled a major con job on The Times in getting these photos of "Happy Times Are Here Again/Good Fellas" PR shots in the paper. All the Pepsodent in the world can't brush away the moral decay and cracks in the shiny enamel of these supposedly bright, rising stars of the Republican Party.

Congratulations and thanks to the district attorney's office for obtaining the first "guilty" [pleas] in the Scott Baugh investigation. Surely they are close--so very close--to laying out a complete conspiracy case revealing how Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, Assembly Speaker Curt Pringle and supporters developed the plan. It is now clear that Baugh is in the Assembly probably as a result of these illegal actions, and that consequently Pringle was able to capture the Assembly speakership probably through related illegal actions.

Congressional Republicans who are enthusiastically spending their time and our money investigating apparent Democratic political misbehavior claim not to be engaging in partisan political activity. Such claims are undermined by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher's attacks on Orange County Dist. Atty. Michael Capizzi for doing the same kind of investigation of his own party ("Capizzi Denounces Backers of GOP Resolution," Feb. 25). Capizzi is doing what he was elected to do by pursuing apparent Republican political misbehavior related to Assemblyman Scott Baugh's election.

Assemblyman Scott Baugh failed to keep an appointment Monday with the Orange County district attorney's office to answer questions about an investigation into his financial disclosure statements and his possible links to former Democratic candidate Laurie Campbell. Baugh (R-Huntington Beach) declined to comment on why he did not meet with lawyers and investigators with the district attorney's office. However, his attorney, Ronald G.

Newly elected Orange County Dist. Atty. Anthony Rackauckas may be forced to remove his office from prosecuting the political corruption case against Assemblyman Scott Baugh (R-Huntington Beach). Rackauckas may have more potential conflicts of interest than the county's current top prosecutor, Mike Capizzi, who was removed from the case Wednesday by a Superior Court judge.

U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher has paid $2,617 in fines for failure to properly report campaign contributions he made to California candidates, including a $15,000 loan to state Assemblyman Scott Baugh, according to records filed in Washington and Sacramento. Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) paid the fines to the Secretary of State's Political Reform Division in August, according to records filed with the secretary of state and the Federal Election Commission.

In one of the most closely watched legislative races in the state, Assemblyman Scott Baugh (R-Huntington Beach) on Tuesday captured most of the absentee vote--ballots cast, for the most part, before his indictment last week on felony charges. Despite the torrent of publicity since then, Baugh remained optimistic that he would prevail in the Republican primary.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher called again Saturday for the resignation of Orange County Dist. Atty. Michael R. Capizzi, blasting the search of a state assemblyman's home as unwarranted and "beyond the pale." Capizzi responded in a written statement that his office is handling the investigation responsibly. With Assemblyman Scott Baugh at his side, Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) criticized the Friday morning arrival of district attorney's investigators at Baugh's home to execute a search warrant.
