A political battle that turned legal out in California was settled yesterday. State Sen. Carole Migden and the state's Fair Political Practices Commission got into a game of suit-countersuit this spring. The agency determined she was misusing campaign funds, so she sued them, and then they sued back.
Now it's all been resolved. Migden agreed to pay $40,000 in fines, but the agency has agreed to pay some of her legal bills. Wonder which number is higher.
All this played out against Migden's losing primary bid for reelection. The Sacramento Bee reports that she's the first sitting California legislator in a dozen years, from either party, to lose her seat in a primary.
