An illegible scribble on an endorsement letter has become the first controversy in what is expected to be a hotly contested Assembly race in San Bernardino County. Candidate Joe Baca Jr. -- the son of Rep. Joe Baca -- says the signature represents an endorsement from former President Clinton. But a Clinton spokeswoman insists he has given no such backing. "President Clinton has not endorsed anyone in this race," Tammy Sun said. The denial drew the ire of Rep.

Some lawmakers have built reputations for their work on healthcare, military affairs or banking regulation. For Rep. Joe Baca, it's golf. On Wednesday, the Democrat from Rialto joined Arnold Palmer in the Oval Office to celebrate President Obama's signing of his bill to award the Congressional Gold Medal to the golfing legend. "You're an inspiration to every one of us who has touched the game," Baca said at a Capitol Hill gathering afterward with Palmer and other congressional golf enthusiasts.

OK, SO Loretta is all mad at Joe because he's using money from the club treasury for his boys, who Loretta totally can't stand, so Loretta and her sister, Linda, get some girls to go after Joe's boys, but he's elected to head the club, which makes Loretta go postal and she quits. And then Loretta says Fabian said Joe called her a whore! But now Fabian says he doesn't remember, and Joe's all like, "It never happened." Sounds like junior high, doesn't it? It's not.

State Sen. Joe Baca (D-Rialto) defeated Republican businessman Elia Pirozzi on Tuesday night in a special election to replace the late Rep. George E. Brown Jr., who had held the seat since 1972. With almost all of the ballots counted, Baca had 22,766 votes, or 51.7%, and Pirozzi had 19,194 votes, or 43.6%. The remaining votes were split between two minor party candidates. Voter turnout in the single-issue election was 18.2%.

The series of sweeps by Border Patrol agents in the Inland Empire and San Diego County appear to be over, but the political fallout may last until the November election. Rep. Joe Baca (D-San Bernardino), a staunch Latino rights advocate, jumped into the political storm by leading a protest of the sweeps -- which netted more than 450 suspected illegal immigrants -- and helping prompt federal officials to suspend the roundups.

Assembly Speaker Willie Brown has had better nights. Jesse Jackson's presidential campaign, which Brown chaired, lost California by a wide margin. Voters approved two ballot measures curbing the fund-raising and spending practices that have underpinned his power. Most important, Brown's one chance to drive a stake into the heart of the rebel faction challenging his speakership fizzled when his forces failed to dislodge dissident Assemblyman Gerald R. Eaves of Rialto.

The Democratic challenger in one of the Assembly's most contentious primary election races is banking on money from Speaker Willie Brown or his political allies in an effort to upset an incumbent member of the dissident "Gang of Five." Joe Baca, a former U.S. Army paratrooper, realizes that he faces an uphill fight for the Democratic nomination against Gerald R. Eaves (D-Rialto). Nonetheless, Baca exudes confidence.

An immigration raid in which nearly 400 people were arrested scarred a small town and tore families apart, residents told a visiting congressional delegation. The May raid in Postville -- at Agriprocessors, the nation's largest kosher meatpacking plant, by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials -- was the largest of its kind in U.S. history. Reps. Luis V. Gutierrez (D-Ill.), Albio Sires (D-N.J.) and Joe Baca (D-Rialto), members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, heard three hours of often emotional testimony.
