Our readers wrote letters throughout 1992, expressing their viewpoints on a variety of issues. Here are condensed versions of some of those letters to help us remember the events that mattered to Orange County readers this past year. We would like to thank the readers who took the time to share their views, and we look forward to hearing from them and others in 1992. Let me get this straight: The Robert Dornan (R-Garden Grove) who went around threatening Republican women "with intraparty war" if they supported Judge (Judith M.)

The Orange County Republican Party's ethics committee announced Monday that Judith Ryan's primary campaign last spring against Rep. Robert K. Dornan was guilty of "character defamation, inaccuracies and distortions." The committee voted to formally "condemn" Ryan's campaign following a complaint last month from Dornan (R-Garden Grove) that listed 12 allegations of improper election tactics by his opponent.

Republican women who advocate abortion rights are organizing a nationwide fund-raising network to back GOP women candidates and might test their strength against one of Orange County's veteran congressmen. The group, which plans to meet in Washington tonight with Sen. Nancy Landon Kassebaum (R-Kan.) and six Republican congresswomen, has raised more than $100,000 in six weeks, said founder Glenda Greenwald, publisher of a woman's magazine based in Michigan.

Incumbency has never reared its ugly head more forcefully than in your March 7 story about Bob Dornan ("Dornan's Rival Feels Wrath of an Incumbent"). When a former Orange County Superior Court judge, Judith M. Ryan, announced her candidacy, Dornan instantly wielded his Damocles sword to chop off her efforts to oppose him. First he contacted the Republican leadership at the White House. Then he barged into a meeting of WISH (Women in the Senate and House) and threatened them with intraparty war if they chose to support Judge Ryan.

When seven-term Congressman Bob Dornan goes nuts because an unknown candidate who's never run for office decides to challenge him in the Republican primary, there's got to be a reason. Could it be that Dornan, who's always his most amusing when he's his most excitable, is getting downright edgy? Could he be getting the feeling this is not a good year to be Bob Dornan, especially if your opponent just happens to be a Republican woman who favors abortion rights? To review: Judith M.

The county Republican Party's ethics committee heard allegations Tuesday by Rep. Robert K. Dornan that his opponent in last June's GOP primary, Judith Ryan, violated the party's campaign conduct rules. The conduct rules adopted by the county Republican Party are non-binding and are intended to prevent divisive intraparty battles that might split GOP support and damage its nominee. The ethnics committee heard the complaint Tuesday from a Dornan representative.

In a last-minute push to raise cash, a top aide to Rep. Robert K. Dornan (R-Garden Grove) pleaded with Washington lobbyists for campaign contributions to fend off an unexpectedly tough primary challenge. In telephone calls made last week, the aide reportedly told lobbyists who represent Orange County interests that a private poll shows Dornan's June 2 primary opponent, former Orange County Superior Court Judge Judith A. Ryan, trailing by only five percentage points.

Rep. Robert K. Dornan's attack-style politics and millions of dollars in contributions have long made him Orange County's 400-pound gorilla at the polls--able to scare off formidable rivals and easily defeat those who challenge him. Two years ago, Dornan had just one opponent--a Democrat who withdrew shortly after the race started, even though her party held a majority among voters registered in Dornan's central county district. This time, though, things are different.

Terri Baas talks excitedly of losing her "political virginity." She doesn't know me, but figures I'll understand. Because I'm a woman, that's why. Baas is a business owner, 43 years old, a wife and mother of two kids. She dresses smart, invests wisely, drives a big expensive car. She is no slouch. It happened, Baas says, in October of last year, during the monthly meeting of Women in Business. She gives me the details without a hint of embarrassment in her voice. She bubbles, she gushes.
