A group of retired military officers--one of them a member of the county Republican Central Committee--accused Democratic Assemblyman Tom Umberg on Thursday of misleading voters and violating Army regulations by using military pictures of himself in political mailers. But Umberg characterized the charges as a "desperate attempt" by Republicans to discredit him in his reelection bid to the 69th Assembly District.

Assemblyman Tom Umberg, stationed at the U.S. Naval Station in Guantanamo, Cuba, since August, came home to Santa Ana on Tuesday to give supporters the thanks usually shared on election night.

Umberg also had debts of more than $20,000 while Pringle had none.
