A Superior Court judge tentatively ruled Tuesday that former Los Angeles mayoral candidate J. Stanley Sanders violated state law by using campaign funds to pay the rent on his law office, tapping his client trust account to pay political consultants and failing to properly report some contributions. The tentative decision by Judge Paul Boland in a case brought by the state Fair Political Practices Commission could potentially subject Sanders to fines up to $220,000.

Former Los Angeles mayoral candidate J. Stanley Sanders has agreed to pay a $31,000 fine--the largest ever levied against a candidate by the city Ethics Commission--for using campaign funds to pay the overdue rent on his private law office.

Politics: Reelected councilman says he'll block legislative efforts of colleagues who he believes aided his opponent. Some might have seen it as a time for reconciliation, but for newly reelected Los Angeles City Councilman Nate Holden, Wednesday was pay-back time.

J. Stanley Sanders, a Watts-born Rhodes Scholar who played a key role in Mayor Richard Riordan's 1993 election victory, Wednesday kicked off his campaign to unseat Los Angeles City Councilman Nate Holden by calling the incumbent an "embarrassment." At a news conference at his home Wednesday, the 52-year-old Sanders accused Holden of "abandoning his district" by taking up residency three years ago in a Marina del Rey condominium. Holden's 10th District includes the Crenshaw area and much of Koreatown.

One is a Mid-City district emblematic of Los Angeles as the Melting Pot of the '90s. The other, to the west and north, is about as white as one could imagine in a polyglot metropolis. Despite these striking demographic distinctions, there are profound similarities in the voters who will determine the outcome of Los Angeles' two City Council races Tuesday.

Voters in the 10th City Council District will either reelect incumbent Nate Holden on Tuesday or replace him with lawyer J. Stanley Sanders. Since the April 11 primary, in which Holden got 46% of the vote to Sanders' 43%, the candidates have dropped the personal attacks that characterized the primary race. They have instead run tightly focused campaigns to win the support of those most likely to vote--largely older homeowners--through door-to-door walks and phone calls.

Q: How would you, as a councilman, differ from Holden? A: On [the proposed removal of] Leslie Winner, I spoke up: If I were on the City Council I would vote to keep Leslie Winner on the Fire Commission, doing what she was doing with the affirmative action policies that the Fire Department is struggling to implement. Holden, to my knowledge, has said nothing about where he is on Leslie Winner or where he is, for that matter, on affirmative action goals in [the Fire Department].
