If you've been following the recent dust-up over an Assemblymember's alleged giving of fake badges (shiny metal ones) to various supporters, you might want to check out the LAT's Political Muscle blog for more on the back story. Especially since the member in question has labeled the Assemblyman in charge of the investigation "the most racist legislator [he has] encountered in over 40 years."
If you know the investigating member, you know how a) false and b) insulting that charge is.
This isn't going to end well.
BTW: the post title is kind of misleading - since this post clearly picks up in the middle of the story. But c'mon, really, was there any other possible title? Can you think of the word "badges" without busting a Sierra Madre? I didn't think so.
