Rep. Loretta Sanchez wants to make one thing clear: She has not endorsed Orange County Marshal Michael S. Carona for county sheriff in 1998. But Carona, who formally announced his candidacy Friday, wants to make something else clear: The Democratic congresswoman from Garden Grove is supporting him over incumbent Sheriff Brad Gates. Who's right? Apparently, both. The distinction between "endorsement" and "support" may be lost on the voting public, but to politicians it is vital.

Attorneys for former Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona implored a federal judge Friday to dismiss most of the charges he is facing, contending that prosecutors from the U.S. attorney's office overstepped their authority in targeting him. Carona attorney John D. Cline said the federal government is obligated to allow states to set and enforce their own political corruption laws.

Attorneys for former Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona asked a judge Friday to instruct jurors in his upcoming corruption trial that federal prosecutors violated state ethical guidelines when they instructed a former assistant sheriff to secretly record conversations with Carona last year.

An influential Republican businessman and longtime supporter of Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona said Tuesday he would endorse one of the sheriff's opponents in what's expected to be a contentious race for the county's top law enforcement job. Mario Rodriguez, the former vice chairman of the state Republican Party who headed President Bush's 2004 Western regional campaign, said he'd grown weary of the scandals surrounding the Sheriff's Department and would support Lt.

Responding in part to public criticism, Orange County Sheriff Mike Carona announced Friday that he has abandoned a proposal to add his name to the department's roughly 300 patrol cars. Letters, calls and e-mail--most of them critical--have poured into the Sheriff's Department since the proposal became public last month. Carona said the decision to kill the plan was made at a meeting of his top staff two weeks ago. The sheriff himself called the plan a clever but flawed marketing concept.

Former Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona's request to file a secret motion to move his corruption trial out of Southern California violates the 1st Amendment's free-press protection, a media attorney argued Thursday. Carona's attorneys have asked U.S. District Judge Andrew J. Guilford to keep their motion to move the trial sealed because releasing it would create additional inflammatory publicity about the case.

Former Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona has lost his bid to have a prosecutor removed from his corruption case because of the prosecutor's role in the wiretapping of a government informant. Carona's attorneys had argued that Assistant U.S. Atty. Brett Sagel should be disqualified because he was the best witness regarding a bogus subpoena that former Assistant Sheriff Don Haidl took with him when he met with Carona and secretly taped conversations.

Flanked by two attorneys and a public relations advisor, Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona met with reporters one on one Tuesday, hours after he was named in a 10-count federal indictment accusing him of widespread corruption. The 20 or so reporters waiting outside his office were expecting to hear his side of the story. Each had a strictly enforced time limit of five minutes with the sheriff, just enough for two or three questions. And there was no shortage of potential questions.

Attorneys for former Orange County Sheriff Michael S. Carona revealed Tuesday that the government plans to present additional allegations against Carona during his upcoming corruption trial, and argued that they are entitled to the information before the trial later this month. Jeffrey Rawitz, one of Carona's attorneys, said the defense became aware of the allegations during pretrial discussions with prosecutors, and asked that details be turned over to them.
