In 1382, the tiny walled port of Trieste put itself under the protection of the Holy Roman Empire out of fear of its aggressive neighbor, Venice. For five and a half centuries it was Austria's Italy. In 1918, at the end of the First World War, it changed hands; and ever since, it has been Italy's Austria. An identity problem, but only one of many. Both under Austria and today, much of the population is of Slavic origin.

A TV ad by state Treasurer Phil Angelides excoriates Controller Steve Westly for raising campaign cash from "a corrupt Chicago businessman" -- yet Angelides apparently sought fundraising aid from the same man. Angelides, who is competing with Westly for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, and his aides placed repeated calls to Chicago attorney Joseph Cari in early 2005 in search of fundraising help, a Cari spokesman told The Times.

State Controller and gubernatorial candidate Steve Westly steered California's giant pension system to invest in a fledgling venture capital fund whose politically connected partners helped him raise campaign cash. Before Westly's involvement, the pension board's outside advisors had rejected the fund as ill-suited for its portfolio. After the investment was made, one of the partners became enmeshed in an unrelated pension-fund scandal in Illinois, pleading guilty to attempted extortion.

CALL ME A ROMANTIC, but an election season almost universally eulogized as dull is making me feel hopeful. Not because it feels so terribly different from other state campaign seasons. It isn't. Like campaigns of the recent past, this one is characterized mostly by the specter of term limits, which has Assembly members scrambling to run for Senate seats and a crop of new candidates vying to fill the vacancies left behind. Part of my hopefulness has nothing at all to do with next week's election.

Democratic gubernatorial rivals Steve Westly and Phil Angelides each tried to raise new doubts about the other's integrity Monday as they scurried to Memorial Day campaign stops hundreds of miles apart. After paying tribute to the war fallen at San Francisco National Cemetery in the Presidio, Westly opened the day's ethics clash on a bus ride across the Bay Bridge to Oakland.

When Richard J. Daley was sworn in as mayor of Chicago in April 1955, the next day's newspaper carried a hastily posed portrait of the new mayor and his family. His youngest son, Billy, then 7, was standing off to the side, almost out of sight. That would be the Bill Daley persona for years to come: a behind-the-scenes man, helping politicians of all stripes, but never holding office himself.

Soon after taking office in January 2003, state Controller Steve Westly began helping three venture capital firms land multimillion-dollar investments from California's giant pension system, according to public records including e-mails and officials' calendars. Westly, now running for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, received campaign donations from individuals associated with each of the funds, campaign finance records show.

Sen. Barack Obama, who has repeatedly called for limiting the role of money in politics, left California this week with millions of dollars pledged to his campaign for the White House. His fundraising swing through Silicon Valley, Beverly Hills and other traditional sources of campaign cash illustrated the predicament facing anyone running for office as a reformer while trying to be a viable candidate. The Illinois Democrat has called for tighter regulation of lobbyists and campaign finances.
