Re "Starr Has Strong Case for Impeachment, D.A. Says," Sept. 18. I was amazed to read the article quoting Ventura County Dist. Atty. Michael Bradbury's comments about evidence against President Clinton. Bradbury is an example of honesty in government? What happened to the house for his mother that the taxpayers supported and that was located on his very expensive property? Clinton was an idiot but he has been a good president. I would love to know more about all these people on TV and in the newspapers who lead perfect lives.

The Bush administration is considering Ventura County Dist. Atty. Michael D. Bradbury as one of several candidates for U. S. attorney in Los Angeles. Bradbury, a 59-year-old Republican, said this week that he is flattered that he has been mentioned as a candidate for top federal attorney in the Central District, which stretches from Orange County to San Luis Obispo. "That kind of came out of the blue," he said. "But I have not applied for the job, and I'm happy doing what I'm doing."

Ventura County Dist. Atty. Michael Bradbury announced that his office would not participate with the state of California in investigating and prosecuting workers' compensation insurance fraud. Meanwhile, workers' compensation insurance fraud is rampant, and the insurance rates imposed on business small and large are crushing the life out of us. Bradbury should be recalled and thrown out for his outrageous behavior. First, he asked the state for far more money than he knew he could get. Then he blames the state.

Enough is enough! Local newspapers have been inundated with a diatribe of ill-informed attacks on Ventura County Dist. Atty. Michael Bradbury. Among these have been efforts to portray him as the county's judicial kingmaker, as well as holding drawn-out injudicious negotiations with a criminal defense attorney while a missing girl's body lay in a remote culvert. Let's look at the facts. In recent and past elections, dedicated public servants have presented themselves as candidates for judgeships.

Ventura County Dist. Atty. Michael Bradbury might be within the law (for now) while accepting a government subsidy for renting a home to his mother on his own ranch (Aug. 10). However, is it right when others without families to help with housing remain on waiting lists for three to five years for rent subsidies? Bradbury is a prime example of those who adjust their behavior to whatever will fit within the law. The reason we have so many laws is that not enough individuals will do the right thing.

Don't you just love those Republican family values? County Dist. Atty. Michael Bradbury, caught getting welfare for his mother to live in a house on his $500,000 property, has now generously offered to give the monthly sum to charity, thereby generating a tax break on his six-digit salary. Cool. I can understand his belief that his mother needs to feel she's not a burden on the family, but some mothers (and children, etc.) on Section 8 waiting lists need things, too, like a roof over their heads.

Bob Larkin, a longtime Republican activist and former Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce president, announced that he has decided to oppose beleaguered Assemblywoman Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley) in the 1990 primary. "I've decided that I think there's enough support to start a good, hard campaign," Larkin, who owns a State Farm Life Insurance Co. agency, said Friday. "I'm in it for the long haul." Larkin, 52, first vice chairman of the Ventura County Republican Central Committee, filed papers last month to run, but said he had not made a final decision.

Assembly Speaker Willie Brown asserted Thursday that Ventura County Dist. Atty. Michael D. Bradbury acted irresponsibly in his investigation that concluded that Brown and Assemblywoman Cathie Wright improperly sought to intercede with authorities in traffic cases involving Wright's frequently ticketed daughter. "I don't know any prosecutor anywhere in the world who conducts an investigation, returns no action on his part . . . and then uses it as a tool for the purposes of condemning other people," Brown, a San Francisco Democrat, told reporters in Sacramento.

There's a lot of things Ventura County Dist. Atty. Michael D. Bradbury doesn't like. Criminals. Supervisors who try to cut his budget. And now comes reindeer meat. "It tastes like liver," Bradbury said, shaking his head. "Tough liver." But last month, eating reindeer was all in a day's work for Bradbury. Not the work most people connect him with. His other work.
