A coalition of lupus support groups asked the state attorney general Wednesday to investigate a nonprofit lupus foundation headed by Assemblyman Tom Bane (D-Tarzana) and a series of allocations of public funds by a state lupus research board headed by Bane's wife. The groups questioned the state board's allocation of $800,000 to a physician friend of the Banes and claimed, in a letter to Atty. Gen. John K. Van de Kamp, that the research "contracted for by the state was simply not done, unless it was done so badly that it was not publishable."

The fund-raising operation of Assemblyman Tom Bane (D-Tarzana) has repeatedly pressed for contributions from scientists who had applied for research grants from the state Lupus Appropriations Board, of which Bane's wife is an influential member. Most of the more than a dozen scientists interviewed by The Times said they had no contact with Bane's fund-raisers before applying for the grants. Several said they were troubled by the practices.

The two leading lupus support groups in California have launched a campaign to persuade Assemblyman Tom Bane (D-Tarzana) and other state officials not to divert $572,000 earmarked for lupus research to other health programs. They also want to convince the officials that a controversial state Lupus Appropriations Board should not be abolished. The three-member board, which has dispensed nearly $6.2 million in state funds to scientists since it was established by the Legislature in 1976, has not held its annual meeting to award $572,000 appropriated to it in this year's budget.

Reponding to allegations by lupus support groups, the state attorney general's office has said it will audit allocations of public funds by a state board that supports research on the disease and is headed by the wife of Assemblyman Tom Bane (D-Tarzana). State prosecutors will also investigate funds distributed by a nonprofit lupus foundation run by Bane, said Duane Peterson, spokesman for Atty. Gen. John K. Van de Kamp. The attorney general's office is responsible for ensuring that funds raised by nonprofit groups are used for their intended purpose.

An obscure state medical research board headed by Marlene Bane, a prominent Democratic fund-raiser who is married to Assemblyman Tom Bane (D-Tarzana), has operated with extraordinary autonomy in dispensing nearly $6.2 million in state funds to scientists. The state Lupus Appropriations Board's makeup, evaluation process, some of its grant decisions and its link to the campaign fund-raising operation run by Marlene Bane have raised troubling questions over the years among grant applicants, state Department of Health Services officials and even current board members, according to state records and interviews.
