Well, it seems that Bird-bashing is still the order of the day, even after the voters have handed down what should be the last word on her court: their overwhelming rejection of her as chief justice. Now along comes Bill Zimmerman to throw some more stones at poor Chief Justice Rose Elizabeth Bird (Opinion, Nov. 9), "The Campaign That Couldn't Win: When Rose Bird Ran Her Own Defeat." Zimmerman's article takes the prize for having more self-serving statements in any analysis piece I've read in The Times.

California Chief Justice Rose Elizabeth Bird is expected to name a new campaign manager in a move to end the disarray that became evident during the first few months of her reelection drive. He is John Law, a Washington-based political consultant. Law, 34, is a former executive director of the Democratic Party in Iowa. He gained a reputation as a skilled political organizer for his work on behalf of the 1984 presidential bid of Sen. Alan Cranston (D-Calif.).

Assemblyman Gil Ferguson (R-Newport Beach) denounced the automobile insurance initiative known as Proposition 103 at a news conference Thursday and took the opportunity to lambaste one of his favorite targets--fellow Assemblyman Tom Hayden (D-Santa Monica). Ferguson called the measure "Santa Monica socialism," a reference to longtime antagonist Hayden, whom Ferguson once tried to get expelled from the Assembly for his Vietnam War activities.

Just two weeks after announcing his likely candidacy, state Sen. John Garamendi (D-Walnut Grove) was reported Wednesday to have broken out in front of the field in the crowded race for the Democratic nomination for state insurance commissioner, according to a poll to be released today. The independent California Poll shows Garamendi leading with support from 24% of those Democrats surveyed, according to those who have seen the poll results.

Coordinators of the proposed "Voter Revolt" insurance initiative backed by consumer advocate Ralph Nader said Monday that a surge of new petition signatures has given them confidence that they will be able to qualify their measure for the November ballot after all.

The reason consumer, environmental, civil rights and community groups oppose legal "reform" schemes, such as those shamelessly sold by Michael Johnson, Andrew Tobias and Bill Zimmerman ("A New, No-Fault Road Map to Auto Insurance Reform," Commentary, June 5), is that 95% of all litigation results from businesses suing each other, yet curbing big business lawsuits and the fees charged by their high-priced attorneys is never addressed. Only the rights of consumers are revoked, for instance, in the initiatives propounded by Zimmerman, Johnson and Tobias, who appear to be no more than a front for rich special interests seeking immunity for wrongdoing.

May 25, 1990 | Elements of the ads, with an analysis by Times staff writer Kenneth Reich
The race: Insurance Commissioner. Whose ads? Democratic candidate Conway Collis. Collis has two 30-second commercials that try to hammer home Proposition 103 author Harvey Rosenfield's endorsement. The ads also seek to make the point that Collis would do the most to force the insurance industry to follow the provisions of the measure. Campaign manager Bill Zimmerman says the buy for these ads will be a sizable $235,000.

Coordinators of the Proposition 103 campaign have asked U.S. postal inspectors and the FBI to investigate why they received such a tiny return on a pre-election fund-raising mailing of 1.5 million pieces. Bill Zimmerman, political consultant to the heavily indebted campaign, said that based on a test mailing sent out two months in advance of the full mailing, at least $500,000 should have been received in contributions from the full mailing.
