A group of Democratic congresswomen vowed Thursday to shut down the House of Representatives, if that's what it takes to end the investigation into the contested election between Rep.

I'm not saying they wouldn't. But I don't think they would."

Benny Hernandez, former campaign field director for Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Garden Grove), will hold a news conference Tuesday to respond to allegations that he advised a couple to vote illegally in November's election.

The decision to ask businessman John Crean rather than Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Garden Grove) to speak at Chapman University's commencement drew reactions from both sides Wednesday. "I question the motivation behind the decision, especially when Chapman claims to encourage understanding of human diversity, and Loretta Sanchez is the epitome of someone who represents that diversity: a Democrat in Orange County, a woman and a Latina," said Josh Elson, a senior who is majoring in music.
