Henry Waxman

His public profile outside his 29th Congressional District may be low, but the issues Rep. Henry Waxman tackles are not. And that has earned him no end of two-edged labels. He has been called a zealot, profiled as a master of the inside game and accused of practicing McCarthyism. Then there are the animal comparisons: dinosaur, bulldog and "tougher than a boiled owl."

After putting Mayor Tom Bradley on hold for more than a month, the Westside's Berman-Waxman political organization plans to endorse him today, The Times has learned. Sources said Reps. Howard Berman (D-Studio City) and Henry Waxman (D-Los Angeles) will announce their backing of the mayor, who is running for a fourth term against Councilman John Ferraro. The announcement is expected to be another plus for the mayor, already heavily favored over Ferraro.

Henry Waxman minds if you smoke. More than anybody else on Capitol Hill, Waxman minds. That is old news, famous news. But not so long ago, Waxman tolerated smoking even in the one place he ruled absolutely. Today, the decor of Waxman's offices here features framed copies of Doonesbury's Mr. Butts series, autographed by Garry Trudeau. But until the mid-1980s, the office atmosphere was routinely polluted by three staff members who smoked.

Where else but the Los Angeles Westside could an 18-year incumbent congressman--a nationally esteemed authority on health and environmental issues--walk into the heart of his district and get assailed for his stand on dietary supplements and herbal remedies? Such was the case Tuesday night as Democrat Henry Waxman, running for reelection in the 29th District, debated two of his challengers, Republican Mark Robbins and independent David Davis.

Henry Waxman has long been a man of almost dual identities. In Washington, the 18-year Democratic congressman from the Westside of Los Angeles is an influential advocate for the poor, the elderly, AIDS patients and environmentalists as chairman of the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on health and environment.

With the House Republican investigation into Democratic campaign finances stumbling badly, congressional Democrats are mobilizing for a counterattack. And they are putting their faith in a 12-term Westside congressman. His feet barely touch the floor when he sits down, but when he walks the halls of Congress he has a reputation as one of the most skilled and stubborn liberals ever to serve in the institution.

Armed with a signed copy of the Republicans' "contract with America," Paul Stepanek is off and running for Congress in 1996. The problem is, he's trying to sell the policies of Newt Gingrich and company in an unlikely spot--the solidly Democratic Westside. Stepanek has his eye on the 29th Congressional District, which spans the Westside from Santa Monica to Hollywood, passing through such upscale enclaves as Brentwood and Beverly Hills.
