Bob Mulholland, the political director of the Democratic Party who was suspended for efforts to discredit Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bruce Herschensohn, is an old hand at attack-style politics. This year alone, he has figured in dirty politics charges stemming from research he ordered into the background of an opponent of state Senate President Pro Tem David A.

It appears that some people and The Times misunderstood my remarks about Gov. Wilson ("Wilson Defiant Over Immigration Issue," Aug. 19). I would have said the same thing even if he were six feet tall. The circumstances were that I was not in Room 1190 when Wilson was holding his news conference. I was outside in the hallway and the door was closed. As the reporters came out they immediately started asking me about Wilson's comment. My first thought and reaction was that I was surprised a governor would talk like a staff person.

The California Democratic Party official who was suspended for revealing U.S. Senate candidate Bruce Hershensohn's visits to a Hollywood strip joint and adult newsstands will be back on the job Monday and his new assignment will be to research Republican Gov. Pete Wilson. "We're going to make 1993 as miserable for Wilson as Nov. 3 was," Bob Mulholland said during a telephone interview from his home in Chico in Butte County.

Stung by accusations that he patronized a Hollywood nude dance club and an adult newsstand, U.S. Senate candidate Bruce Herschensohn issued a seething condemnation of his opponent Saturday, calling Democrat Barbara Boxer a "coward" and accusing her of orchestrating an eleventh-hour attempt to discredit him.

The environmental community lost a good friend in Michael Landon. Landon played an active role in the Big Green campaign (Proposition 128) last November. He believed strongly that the big institutions (corporations and government) weren't doing enough to protect the environment. He was right. Cancer took him away from all of us but hopefully we can all work harder for what he believed in--cleaning up our environment. BOB MULHOLLAND Campaign Manager, Big Green Chico
OPINION

This is in regard to state Sen. Jim Brulte's reference to drunken sailors (Inside Politics, Jan. 28). Many thanks to Democratic campaign director Bob Mulholland for his righteous indignation at this insolent slur. However, having served on a destroyer in the '50s, I must confess that when we hit port we worked hard to preserve the image that has endured so obstinately over the years.

The last local chapter of the Campaign for Economic Democracy, an activist-liberal group established by Assemblyman Tom Hayden and his actress-wife, Jane Fonda, has been disbanded in Chico. "Chico was the last holdout," Bob Mulholland, the CED's state political director, said. He said the organization, which once had 30 chapters throughout the state, will no longer maintain them, although it will have offices in Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Jose and San Francisco.

The Democratic presidential nominating convention at Staples Center will be held Monday, Aug. 14, through Thursday, Aug. 17, 2000, the California Democratic Party announced Wednesday. "It leaves about a week between the GOP convention in Philadelphia and ours," said Bob Mulholland, spokesman for the state party in Sacramento. "It gives the networks just enough time to reposition and is certainly better than last time, when the Summer Olympics in Atlanta backed us up to nearly Labor Day."

As a member of the State Central Committee of the California Democratic Party, I was outraged when I discovered that Bob Mulholland was suspended from his official capacity with our party (Nov. 1), because he was the one who made public Herschensohn's attendance at a nightclub featuring nude dancing. Herschensohn identifies strongly with the religious right wing of the Republican Party. He has repeatedly articulated a gravely limited view of the role of the U.S.

Assemblyman Tom Hayden's commencement speech at San Jose City College has been canceled because officials fear violent protests by local Vietnamese, it was announced Wednesday. The former anti-war activist, now a Democratic assemblyman from Santa Monica, had been scheduled to address the graduation exercises Friday evening at a school where about 40% of the 190 students expected to show up to receive their diplomas are Vietnamese.
