The frequently ticketed daughter of Assemblywoman Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley) entered Ventura County Jail to begin a 30-day sentence for violating conditions of her traffic offense probation. Victoria Wright, 24, was conditionally accepted for the county work furlough program two weeks ago, but failed to submit the required paperwork until Monday, said program manager Richard Humeston. He said he expects to make a final decision today.

The House Ethics Committee has found no rules violations by lawmakers who used a VIP loan program from Countrywide Financial Corp. The committee's leaders said its investigation largely led to the same conclusions as the Senate Ethics Committee, which determined in 2009 that there was "no substantial credible evidence" that two of its members had broken rules by accepting loans through the special program. Although the House Ethics Committee likewise cleared members of that body, committee Chairwoman Jo Bonner (R-Ala.)

When the Supreme Court struck down, on free-speech grounds, a law making it a federal crime to sell videos depicting animal cruelty, Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) had more than a passing interest. He wrote the law. On Wednesday, Gallegly responded swiftly to the ruling, introducing a "narrowly tailored" bill aimed at passing constitutional muster. The measure would target so-called animal crush videos, such as those showing women in high heels stomping on puppies and kittens.

I am writing to thank Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) for co-sponsoring Senate Bill 773 to protect America's Redrock Wilderness. I've visited much of Utah's southwestern corner and plan to return at the end of this month. I cannot express enough my personal excitement at seeing America's Redrock Wilderness Act back in Congress very soon, and I want to urge Congressman Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) to co-sponsor HR 1500. Thanks, Sen. Boxer, for doing the right thing! ALICE TSENG Moorpark

Re "Ex-Playboy Playmate to Challenge Gallegly," Aug. 14. So Patricia McClain is competing with Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) for a Congressional position. News flash, Sweetie! What Bill Clinton did with Monica in the Oval Office was disrespectful, sleazy and stupid. How has it opened the door for you? Good luck, Patricia, but Elton Gallegly does stand for family values quite different from those of Bill and Hillary Clinton. Save your filing fee and take your son out to dinner.

How encouraging it is to see U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) combine their efforts in seeking legislation to thwart the recruiting of young members by the criminal street gangs. Without such constraints on the sordid actions of the antisocial minority, we of the responsible majority would see an ever-expanding world of youthful crime and ruined lives. We congratulate both Congressman Gallegly and Sen. Feinstein. T. BOONE GRAHAM, Port Hueneme

Re "Affordable, Available, Voluntary Drug Coverage Is Goal" (June 18) and "Medicare Needs a Voluntary Prescription Drug Benefit" (June 25), Ventura County Perspective. I read with great interest these columns written by Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) and his Democratic challenger, Michael Case, on the issue of prescription drug coverage for seniors. There is quite a difference between these two candidates for Congress. I agree with Michael Case on this issue, but even if I didn't, I would be impressed that he actually takes stands on issues instead of playing political games as Gallegly has done on so many occasions over the years.

Robert Wilcox, a San Fernando Valley Republican activist who was weighing a 1990 primary challenge to Assemblywoman Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley), said Tuesday that he has decided not to run. Wilcox, a former aide to Assemblywoman Marian W. La Follette (R-Northridge), said he based his decision on the emergence of two other prospective Republican candidates and his unwillingness to leave his lifelong hometown of Northridge to move into Wright's 37th District. "It's not my seat, it's not my district, it's not my area," said Wilcox, 23, who resides in La Follette's 38th District.

Since the beginning of time, women have been prisoners of their bodies because men have always determined whether or not a woman would be pregnant. Today, not much has changed, except that the man making those decisions are not a woman's husband but her congressman. Because of the lack of support by our government to find more effective forms of birth control, American women are continuously being faced with unwanted pregnancies. Unfortunately, the only way to terminate an unwanted pregnancy is an abortion.

One is a veteran Congressman who touts his role in shielding Ventura County's only military base from closure; the other is a professor of national security issues who teaches at the Navy base. The incumbent Republican points to his long experience in Washington, while his Democratic opponent chides him for being an ineffective lawmaker who refuses to debate. But then Rep.
The Bush administration is considering Ventura County Dist. Atty. Michael D. Bradbury as one of several candidates for U. S. attorney in Los Angeles. Bradbury, a 59-year-old Republican, said this week that he is flattered that he has been mentioned as a candidate for top federal attorney in the Central District, which stretches from Orange County to San Luis Obispo. "That kind of came out of the blue," he said. "But I have not applied for the job, and I'm happy doing what I'm doing."

When the mean-spirited Newt Gingrich "revolution" was going full blast, Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) and Assemblyman Tony Strickland (R-Moorpark) were fully on board. Now presidential candidate George W. Bush is trying to push his "compassionate conservative" image, and our two guys are trying their best to get on that bandwagon. Bush, Gallegly and Strickland have been, are and will be conservative Republicans regardless of the image they portray to get elected. Ventura County is changing fast, and the candidates who need to be elected are Democrats Michael Case, Roz McGrath, Hannah-Beth Jackson and Dan Gonzalez.

For me, Rep. Elton Gallegly's July 31 letter to constituents became an exercise in futility. I was moved to respond but discovered he does not have a [direct] e-mail address and still doesn't. His unwillingness now to debate his opponent before the voters is consistent. Recently, our Ventura County district attorney chose to "support Gallegly as most committed to keeping our neighborhoods safe." Besides the normal good support we should expect of any officeholder, no reasons are given for making that claim.

I'd like to thank Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) for voting to repeal the marriage tax and to override President Clinton's veto. My wife and I are tired of paying more than our fair share of taxes, and we're glad our congressman is on our side. It's too bad the liberals believe only they know how to help people and that the working families of our nation shouldn't be allowed to keep more of their hard-earned money. When so many religions and cultures venerate the institution of marriage, which is so important to the raising of solid adults and citizens for the future, the fact that our governmental institutions seem determined to punish rather than reward marriage in our tax code is disappointing.

Re "Bush, Gallegly--Prop 187," Ventura County Letters, Aug. 16. I am already disgusted at the lies and mudslinging that extreme ultraliberals like this letter writer are engaging in, and it's only August. In her mean-spirited attack on Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley), she dusts off old lies about Gallegly's position on illegal immigration. She and her partisan friends just can't seem to accept the fact that here in Ventura County, Elton Gallegly enjoys broad support from Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike.

Simi Valley residents with questions or comments for Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) will have an opportunity to meet with a representative from his office today at City Hall. Renea Solis, from Gallegly's district office, will be on hand from 9 a.m. to noon to answer questions that residents might have for the congressman. Gallegly spokesman Jim Maiella said Gallegly tries to have weekly meetings in cities throughout the district.

Re "Congressmen Differ on Seizure of Elian," April 25. Rep. Elton Gallegly's (R-Simi Valley) condemnation of the mission to reunite little Elian Gonzales with his father is utterly ridiculous when you take into account Gallegly's own record. We remember well the news photos of Gallegly's participation in early-morning immigration service raids in Simi Valley a few years ago. Gallegly did not seem to mind those tactics when they were designed to evict sleeping Mexican families with young children from their homes.

Re "Bush Crosses Historic Lines in Local Stop," Aug. 10. George W. Bush must think the people of Oxnard can't remember from one minute or election to the next. Does he think we forgot or don't care that Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) coauthored Proposition 187? Does he think it unimportant that Gallegly bragged about supporting the proposition's restrictions, which deny children born in the United States to immigrants unable to prove their legal status their right to attend public schools or receive any type of public health care?
