A state senator is carrying legislation at the request of a political consultant who ran his reelection campaign, continues to be on retainer and has clients who would benefit from the measure. Richard Ross, both a political consultant and lobbyist in Sacramento, told The Times that one of his lobbying clients -- the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Mission Indians -- came to him seeking the legislation, and he asked his political client, Sen. Dean Florez (D-Shafter), to sponsor the bill.

The 53-year-old campaign strategist and lobbyist is an advocate for labor unions -- and for the Indian gambling operations that fight them. He sells his high-priced expertise to personal-injury and workers' compensation attorneys, while separately peddling advice to business interests the lawyers sue.

You don't want to be his enemy. You don't necessarily want to be his friend. But if you're in a tight spot, chances are you'd want to have him on your side. So it was natural that Rep. Gary Condit (D-Ceres), fighting the most difficult battle of his career, would turn in recent weeks to Richie Ross, one of California's most seasoned political veterans and an advisor to Condit for 20 years. This was not altogether unfamiliar terrain for Ross, who is part of a team counseling Condit.

SACRAMENTO -- A state senator who sought to become a paid public relations advisor to Indian gambling interests accused a tribal consultant Thursday of publicly disclosing his sales pitch -- and said he will be watching how the tribe handles the consultant.

Only two years ago, term limits forced Richard Katz out of office at the pinnacle of his power. Before he left the capital, he was a Democratic leader and an influential Sacramento pol who was credited with masterminding his party's return to power in the Assembly.
