A representative of state Sen. Jeff Denham filed complaints Thursday seeking a criminal investigation of Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata, alleging that he misused public resources and violated bribery laws by suggesting in a memo last week that certain state employees had to work on key political campaigns.

Jeff Denham is not one of the Republican members of Congress most seriously threatened in 2014. The Modesto-area representative isn't even the most threatened Republican in California. But a liberal group working on behalf of President Obama and other Democrats is going after him anyway, airing ads that blame him for the “tea party shutdown” of the federal government that could “devastate middle-class families” like those in his district. The ad airing in the Sacramento media market says Denham shut down the government - as if he were solely responsible--“putting hundreds of thousands of Americans out of work, putting critical benefits for veterans, seniors and the disabled at risk, denying cancer treatment for kids,” among other things.

WASHINGTON - Reps. Jeff Denham and Dana Rohrabacher are California GOP colleagues usually on the same side of issues - except immigration. Denham, who represents District 10 in the Central Valley, supports legislation that would grant millions of immigrants legal status and says an overhaul of immigration laws is important to the state's economy and the Republican Party's future. The issue is personal, too. He is married to the daughter of a legal Mexican immigrant. His sister married an immigrant who entered the country illegally but now has legal status.

This is the time of year when the northern San Joaquin Valley is actually bucolic. Temperatures are bearable. The hills are green and the orchards are in full bloom -- almonds gussied in white, peaches in pink. Too bad that this spring there's also a foul odor of Sacramento political pollution. In a nutshell, the local state senator -- Republican Jeff Denham of Merced -- didn't vote for the state budget last summer.

Donald Benart runs a business in Rialto, hundreds of miles from the Central California district of state Sen. Jeff Denham, and has never met the Republican lawmaker who represents this farming area. But Benart recently wrote a $100 check to help save Denham's political career. So did Russell Alston of West Covina and Jeffrey Skinner of Northridge and Jay Garacochea of Santa Monica, none of whom lives within 200 miles of Denham's district.

WASHINGTON — In a potential threat to the long-stalled new downtown Los Angeles federal courthouse, the Republican-controlled House voted Wednesday night to prevent the Justice Department from spending money to staff the building. The prohibition, attached to a funding bill, is certain to face resistance in the Senate, where California's Democratic senators have made a new courthouse at 1st and Broadway a priority. Still, the vote signaled Central Valley Republican Rep. Jeff Denham's determination to scuttle a $400-million project he considers unnecessary.

Central Valley Rep. George Radanovich announced Tuesday that he is stepping down from his strongly Republican district seat next year and has asked state Sen. Jeff Denham, a fellow conservative Republican, to run to replace him. Radanovich, a 15-year veteran of Congress from Mariposa, said in statement that he wants to spend more time with his wife, Ethie, who is battling ovarian cancer; and his son.

Introducing a bit of drama into a usually lackluster California House race, Richard W. Pombo, a former Republican congressional heavyweight who was defeated in a reelection bid in 2006, plans to try for a political comeback -- in a different district than the one in which he lost. The one-time House Resources Committee chairman is running for the Central Valley seat being vacated by Rep. George Radanovich (R-Mariposa), setting up a GOP primary battle against state Sen. Jeff Denham and former Fresno Mayor Jim Patterson.

The California legislative and congressional district races on this week's primary ballot fell mostly into two categories: those whose lopsided party registration means they were all but decided Tuesday and those in which November runoff battles are looming. A few fit in a third category: still too close to call. Because the Legislature drew many political districts in California to favor one major party or the other, most of the contested primaries Tuesday are in the first group.

A week after election day, the race for state controller is undecided, with 34,038 votes separating Democrat Steve Westly from Republican Tom McClintock. With thousands of provisional and absentee ballots to be counted, Westly holds a tissue-thin lead over McClintock, 3,010,419 votes to 2,976,381. Some races for the Legislature are also undecided, including the contest for a Senate seat in the San Joaquin and Salinas valleys between Republican Jeff Denham and Democrat Rusty Areias.
