Police Chief Arb Campbell, buffeted by successive accusations of rape and condoning sexual harassment, Friday withdrew his two-day-old pledge to retire next spring, saying through a spokesman he "is not going to sit back and let these allegations run wild." Sgt. Andy Gonis, the department's spokesman, said Campbell "rescinded his retirement plans because he fully expects to be exonerated in any investigation, and plans on returning to full duty as chief of police."

It's time somebody sat down and told Elgin Baylor, Larry Brown and Donald Sterling just how stupid they are after these latest trades. For years, the Clippers have failed to take lessons from the Lakers: You don't win on ability alone--you need discipline, sacrifice, intelligence and a character-forming chemistry involving the right kind of people. What the Clippers have now are the wrong components. They broke up the backbone of a good young team and picked up a lot of journeyman riffraff.

An ousted legislative aide admitted Tuesday during the sexual harassment trial of former Assemblyman Mickey Conroy that her onetime bosses gave her a pay raise after she first voiced her grievances and accommodated a desire to shift her work schedule. During laborious cross-examination by Conroy's defense attorney, Robyn Boyd also said the kissing, hugging and touching stopped after she raised her concerns, but that the office environment remained troubling for her.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and City Council President Herb Wesson called Wednesday for the creation of a citizen panel to look for ways of boosting the city's anemic voter turnout, months after fewer than one-fourth of the electorate took part in the mayoral election. The proposed Municipal Elections Reform Commission would explore such ideas as changing the date of city elections, offering same-day voter registration, making absentee ballots more readily accessible and conducting special elections that are vote by mail only.
