California Senate Erases Websites Of 3 Suspended Lawmakers

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The California Senate has erased the names and online archives of three suspended lawmakers entangled in ethical scandals.

Over the weekend, the Senate removed pictures, video clips and legislative archives belonging to the Democratic lawmakers. Sen. Rod Wright of Los Angeles was convicted for lying about living inside his district, and federal corruption charges have been filed against two other Democrats, Sens. Ron Calderon of Montebello and Leland Yee of San Francisco.

Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg's office didn't immediately return a request for comment Monday.

Last month, the Senate voted to suspend the lawmakers in an attempt to clean up the institution. Gov. Jerry Brown has also called on the three to resign.

The three continue to receive their $95,291 annual salaries but are not collecting per diem.
