The secretary of state's office is looking into allegations by Assemblywoman Bonnie Garcia that voters are being fraudulently registered in a race to represent eastern Riverside County and Imperial County, a district with one of the few competitive legislative contests this year. After conducting spot-checks, Garcia (R-Cathedral City) said she found what she believed to be more than 2,000 fraudulent voter registrations in the counties, with some voters apparently registered multiple times.

The state lawmaker who Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said had a "hot" Latina temperament, landing him in hot political water, won points with conservative voters recently when she graciously dismissed the incident. But less than a week before Tuesday's election, Assemblywoman Bonnie Garcia (R-Cathedral City) is in danger of losing her seat, some political analysts say, and she has only herself to blame.

Some political operatives clearly have too much time and money to spare and not enough sleep. That's the best explanation I can think of for the hair-trigger overreaction to a Times story Friday by Sacramento reporter Robert Salladay. Campaign strategists are trained these days in the tactic of rapid response. The idea is to make sure that any negative comments about your candidate are quickly answered.

The two events are separated by thousands of miles and almost half a century, yet they never stray far from Ron Oden's mind. As a child, he remembers hiding beneath a kitchen table when members of the Ku Klux Klan showed up at his grandfather's Alabama home. Decades later, when he was marching in a San Diego gay rights parade, tear gas was tossed into the crowd and sent him scurrying for cover. The first incident opened Oden's eyes to discrimination.

Former Assemblyman Steve Clute defeated Palm Springs Mayor Ron Oden by fewer than 100 votes in the 80th Assembly District's Democratic primary, according to final tallies by election officials. Officials in Riverside and Imperial counties finished tabulating several thousand provisional, absentee and paper ballots this month, with Riverside announcing its final count Tuesday. Clute, who bested Oden by 89 votes, will challenge Republican incumbent Bonnie Garcia for the seat in November.

Two cellphone-related bills are being drafted in the wake of an incident in western Riverside County last month, when a company did not quickly assist in locating a 10-month-old boy abducted in a stolen vehicle with a cellphone inside. Assemblyman John Benoit's (R-Palm Desert) legislation would help law enforcement and wireless companies communicate more quickly.

Re: "Governor Apologizes for Ethnic Comments," Sept. 9 I've had the opportunity to work, meet and converse with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on a few occasions, and I can certainly verify that he is a gracious, compassionate, considerate and sensitive person who does not judge you by the color of your skin or the language you speak. As a co-founder of a successful Latino chamber of commerce and a passionate, "hotblooded" Latino, I had to come to the governor's defense at such an unfair attack on his character.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating a possible breach of the governor's computer system after The Times published an audio recording of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger bantering with staff in a private meeting last spring. Schwarzenegger apologized Friday for comments made on the six-minute recording, which The Times posted Thursday on its website.
