Rep. Judy Chu (D-El Monte) e-mailed a letter this week to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office requesting a review of all rape cases submitted for prosecution in 2009 by the West Covina Police Department. Addressed to Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley, the letter asks the office to look into allegations of misconduct by West Covina authorities to ensure that proper investigative procedures were followed. The letter came after a series of articles ran in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune about sex crimes investigator Tyler Kennedy, who recently was suspended over allegations of sexual harassment of an alleged rape victim.

Judy Chu's election to Congress on Tuesday after more than two years on the state tax board could change the balance of power on the panel, which can affect corporate taxes to the tune of millions of dollars. Her now-vacant board seat gives California's business lobby a coveted opportunity for more influence on its decisions, especially if Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, a longtime ally, makes a business-friendly appointment to replace her, as he is expected to.

On the day last month that Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa appeared at a news conference to enthusiastically back Judy Chu for the open 32nd Congressional District seat, her chief rival wasted no time trying to downplay the endorsement.

A ferociously contested congressional race in the San Gabriel Valley has emerged as a classic test of the power of ethnic politics in the aftermath of Barack Obama's racial breakthrough in the presidential election. The election Tuesday to fill the House seat vacated by U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis also spotlights the clashing political aspirations of two of California's fastest growing ethnic groups, Asians and Latinos.

It's getting to be highly embarrassing to admit that you live in Monterey Park. You shudder when you read the San Gabriel Valley section of The Los Angeles Times. Here we go again. The article (Times, Jan. 19) about our three women on the City Council, shows that they aren't adult enough to be able to communicate with each other in private and have to resort to letter writing. Maybe they are in the wrong profession. Councilwomen Judy Chu, Betty Couch and Pat Reichenberger should admit their mistake and resign from politics.
