Your Platform of "independent" voices attacking Senate candidate Mike Huffington's wife, Arianna, "Should a Political Spouse's Beliefs Be Considered When Voting?" (Voices, Oct. 17) was filled with falsehoods and what appears to be some Feinstein campaign scripting. One of your respondents said that Mrs. Huffington is too involved in her husband's campaign. For evidence, she says Mrs. Huffington "debated Robert Dornan in her husband's earlier campaign for Congress, but her husband has not."

After collecting thousands of dollars at a Bel-Air fund-raiser the night before, Arianna Huffington was back on the college circuit Wednesday with her familiar critique of corporate greed and political spinelessness. Appearing in a crowded auditorium at Cal State Northridge, she announced that she would launch a statewide petition drive next week to enact public financing of political campaigns. More than 500 students turned out to see Huffington, a nonpartisan candidate vying to replace Gov.

William J. Bennett, the former education secretary who has been an intellectual godfather to Mike Huffington's U.S. Senate campaign, joined the Republican candidate Tuesday for a fund-raiser and a panel discussion about social values. Bennett's best-selling "Book of Virtues" was the subject of Huffington's first television commercial of the campaign and he is a leading advocate in Washington for ending government welfare, a proposal Huffington has described as the central theme of his campaign.

Kenneth L. Khachigian knows a great deal about running political campaigns for really rich white men. It's obvious from "Checchi Gets Hit Hard Right From Kickoff" (Oct. 12) that "coach" Khachigian is still nettled by the immensely expensive defeat of his client Michael Huffington in 1994. Nevertheless, no matter how disingenuous, Khachigian's advice to and about Al Checchi, a Democratic candidate for governor, should be taken seriously. Yet Khachigian's advice is not comprehensive.

Rejecting Republican charges of widespread voter fraud, a Superior Court judge Monday ordered absentee ballot counting resumed in Los Angeles County, as U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein widened her lead over challenger Mike Huffington. That action also came as a Republican pulled ahead in a crucial legislative race that would give the GOP control of the state Assembly for the first time in 25 years. And a Democratic congresswoman took her first lead in an effort to retain her seat representing the South Bay. Judge Robert O'Brien ordered the tally of absentee ballots resumed two days after Republican Party activist Allen Brandstater persuaded another judge to temporarily halt the count, claiming that illegal immigrants, children and even a dog had been registered to vote.

After so many months of campaigning and so many millions spent on television ads, U.S. Senate candidate Mike Huffington faced the one impromptu question Wednesday that strikes terror in any political underdog: "What's your name?" But the GOP congressman took this one in stride. After all, it came from a 3-year-old.

Re "Huffington and Others Say $30 Million Was Well Spent," Nov. 13: Glenn Bunting's analysis of the Mike Huffington campaign certainly points out the deterioration present in this most recent voting/campaigning process. When a politician, any politician--Republican or Democrat--can crassly expend his fortune to degrade the character of another in order to win, something is drastically wrong. And the speculation that $10 million more would have put Huffington on top definitely is a wake-up call for any voter who considers himself or herself an American.
