With deep-pocketed, three-term Democrat Jane Harman giving up this seat to try unsuccessfully for governor, Republicans think their day is coming at last in this moderate coastal congressional district. But the Democrats have other ideas--Harman recruited Janice Hahn of San Pedro, daughter of the late Kenneth Hahn, a popular longtime county supervisor, and sister of Los Angeles City Atty. James Hahn.

The California Democratic Party, stinging over the loss of the Assembly to Republicans, filed a complaint this week with the state Fair Political Practices Commission about a late $125,000 donation by tobacco giant Philip Morris that may have swung a key Assembly race in Long Beach to the GOP. The Democrats accused Republican Assembly candidate Steve Kuykendall of failing to promptly file a campaign finance report showing that he received the $125,000 Philip Morris donation.

Looking at the campaigning for the pivotal open seat in Los Angeles County's 36th Congressional District, anybody but a political junkie would find it hard to believe just how badly both major parties want to win here. The main contenders in the Venice-to-San Pedro coastal district--Democrat Janice Hahn and Republican Steve Kuykendall--have stuck to the issues and, at least so far, avoided the bitter attacks that have begun surfacing in other hot races as election day draws near.

The California Democratic Party said it filed a lawsuit Thursday over a $125,000 donation by tobacco giant Philip Morris USA that helped Assemblyman Steven T. Kuykendall (R-Rancho Palos Verdes) win a close election in November. In the lawsuit, the party accused Kuykendall and Assembly Republican Leader Jim Brulte of failing to promptly file a campaign finance report showing that Kuykendall received the contribution.

A Democratic assemblywoman from Long Beach whose election loss tipped the state Assembly in favor of the Republicans officially conceded defeat Tuesday, but not before taking a shot at Philip Morris Co. for giving her opponent a last-minute cash infusion. "That's disturbing," said Assemblywoman Betty Karnette, who lost to Rancho Palos Verdes Mayor Steve Kuykendall by 597 votes. "I just sort of think that I am conceding against the tobacco industry."

Assemblyman Steve T. Kuykendall, who represents parts of Long Beach and the Palos Verdes Peninsula, used the slur "Japs" as he introduced a World War II-era Marine Corps Medal of Honor winner at a recent Capitol ceremony, prompting other Assembly members to accuse him of insensitivity.

When Steve Kuykendall won a seat on the Rancho Palos Verdes City Council in November, he was a "read my lips" conservative Republican opposed to big government and new taxes. Like most people living in this upscale bedroom city of 42,000 on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, he didn't trust the distant state or federal bureaucracies and favored local control. "It was them against us," he said. He still feels that way, but his thinking has begun to change. The line between "them" and "us" has blurred and, at times, even he has felt the hot breath of anti-government hostility blowing his way. After eight bruising months of trying to balance the city's red-ink-stained budget, the 45-year-old ex-Marine-turned-banker-and-politician has learned that when political ideology comes hard up against fiscal reality, something has to give.

A bill pushed by Mayor Richard Riordan to reform Los Angeles County's Metropolitan Transportation Authority passed its first legislative test in Sacramento on Monday. The legislation was approved on a bipartisan 10-2 vote by the Assembly Transportation Committee. The bill would replace the 13-member MTA board with a nine-member panel of non-elected appointees.
OPINION
October 29, 2000
Your endorsement of Steve Kuykendall over Jane Harman for Congress has to be the most bizarre paragraph I have ever read in a Times editorial (Oct. 22). We are urged to support Kuykendall because he supports gun control and abortion rights (doesn't Harman support those too?); Harman "forfeited" her seat to run for higher office (since when is this a mortal sin?); and Harman has a stronger position on some national issues (implying that she doesn't on local issues?). On the biggest local issue, Harman has the stronger position--no on Los Angeles International Airport expansion; she agrees with a recent economic study conducted for the Southern California Assn.
