But such a vote might be awkward for some of his colleagues who have faced questions about their own residency. Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) raised the issue during a bitter floor debate last week, before a Republican motion to oust Wright was blocked by his fellow Democrats and sent to a committee to languish until the lawmaker's May 16 sentencing.

Marilyn King, the youngest and last surviving member of the King Sisters, a singing group with roots in the big-band era that found renewed popularity in the 1960s performing with their large extended family on a TV variety show, has died. She was 82. King died Wednesday of cancer in Laguna Niguel, her family announced. The group was originally assembled in the 1930s by their father, William King Driggs, a voice trainer and vaudevillian. Early on they were billed as the Six King Sisters and sang with Horace Heidt's orchestra before paring down to a quartet that featured Marilyn's older sisters, Alyce, Donna, Luise and Yvonne, whose jazz harmonies earned them considerable respect and commercial success.
