Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez is calling for an inquiry into at least one lawmaker's practice of distributing official-looking badges to supporters and contributors. Although Nunez did not name any lawmaker, he issued a sharply worded letter aimed at Assemblyman Mervyn Dymally (D-Compton). Through his aides, Dymally has been handing out "Assembly commissioner" badges to his supporters. "Somewhere down the line, a breakdown has occurred," Nunez said in the letter dated Monday.

Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez has asked California State University leaders to explain why a university budget meeting typically held in October has been pushed back several weeks, and will now occur after the November election. In a letter sent Thursday to the board of trustees, Nunez (D-Los Angeles) pointed out that the panel generally votes in October on the politically sensitive question of whether to raise student fees for the next school year.

Fabian Nunez could be easy to overlook. He's the Assembly speaker, but has the appearance of an eager young staffer. Although pushing 40, he's still smooth-faced, slightly built and pleasantly deferential. A bartender might demand to see his ID. This L.A. Democrat didn't even make the list of 100 "most powerful people in Southern California," as opined last month by The Times' West magazine. And that seemed weird, given the power of the office to directly affect every Californian.

Weeks before the final push of the legislative session, Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez strode into the office of Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and plucked a campaign button from a secretary's desk. The Democratic Assembly leader pinned a "Schwarzenegger: Protecting the California Dream" button on his shirt and entered the inner sanctum of the governor's Capitol office.

In a new twist on political fundraising, Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez is selling World Cup soccer-match tickets to raise money for measures on the November ballot -- including, possibly, a measure to adjust lawmakers' term limits. For $25,000, corporations can send representatives to Berlin to attend three World Cup matches with Nunez, an avid soccer fan.

State Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez is being feted at a Pebble Beach fundraiser this weekend by AT&T, whose interests he is championing in legislation with high stakes for two industries and millions of California consumers. AT&T, which wants to compete freely with cable television companies and stands to gain billions if lawmakers allow it, is holding the "Speaker's Cup" fundraiser at the fabled Monterey County golf resort.

California Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez is one of a new generation of Spanish-speaking politicians who represent an increasingly potent Latino constituency. But somewhere between Sacramento and Mexico City, his goodwill message got lost in translation. Nunez landed in Mexico this week with the best of intentions: strengthening ties with the country, California's largest trading partner, and addressing the thorny issue of illegal immigration.

In a further sign of deteriorating relations between lawmakers and the governor -- just when they need to come together to agree on a state budget -- Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez (D-Los Angeles) and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger traded barbs Tuesday over elements of a special election expected this year. Nunez called the Schwarzenegger administration dishonest, saying the governor had repeatedly broken his word.
