State Sen. John Doolittle (R-Citrus Heights) was fined $3,000 for violating state election laws during his successful 1984 campaign. The Fair Political Practices Commission's action grew out of accusations that Doolittle and his staff failed to disclose that they had paid for a last-minute political mailer on behalf of Doolittle's Democratic opponent, Jack Hornsby. The commission contended that the mailer was aimed at drawing votes from Sen.

Hoping to win votes from Ross Perot's supporters, Rep. John T. Doolittle (R-Stockton) joined Perot's political organization, declaring that the group's principles coincide with his traditional Republican values. Despite his affiliation with Perot's group--United We Stand, America--Doolittle said he remains a member of the Republican Party. "I'm the first (member of Congress) to publicly join. I don't know how many may have joined" privately, he added, flanked by about two dozen Perot supporters.

FBI agents have searched the northern Virginia home of Rep. John T. Doolittle (R-Roseville) in a continuing investigation into the influence-peddling scandal involving former Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

His memory is going, his hearing nearly gone. But as Gen. Jimmy Doolittle turned 95 on Saturday, he still had his prized view--the Pacific Ocean, a backdrop for one of the defining moments of the desperate battle to defeat the Japanese during World War II. The former stunt pilot planned and led the daring "30 Seconds Over Tokyo" bombing raid in April, 1942, the United States' surprise answer to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor four months earlier. The B-25 bomber raid brought U.S.

Sen. Ken Maddy of Fresno, ousted almost four years ago as a member of the Senate Republican hierarchy, was returned to power Thursday as the GOP began trying to rebuild after suffering a major special election setback. As expected, Maddy, 52, replaced Sen. James W. Nielsen of Rohnert Park as the minority party's floor leader at a closed-door meeting, while Sen. John Doolittle of Rocklin succeeded Sen. John Seymour of Anaheim as GOP caucus chairman, the No. 2 leadership position.

"Hi, I'm Roy Whiteaker, your candidate for the state Senate," the hefty fellow in brown Western boots tells voters as he tramps from house to house with an armload of campaign brochures declaring him to be "A great lawman. A great lawmaker."

The Mother Lode country of Northern California, where the 4th Congressional District cuts a huge swath from South Lake Tahoe to Sacramento and through Placer and Mono counties, has become a political battleground that captures all the quirks of the 1992 election year. John T. Doolittle, one of the staunchest House conservatives, is running against Patricia Malberg, a maverick Democrat waging a Perot-style campaign in a contest that is too close to call.

When Rep. John T. Doolittle decided he would boycott the president's State of the Union address last week, he didn't fire off a blistering press release and stomp out of the Capitol in righteous indignation. He went to the dry cleaners, picked up his shirts and called his wife. "I'm not going to the speech. Do you have something planned for dinner or do you want me to bring home some chicken?"
