California governor names Jodi Remke to lead ethics watchdog agency

California Gov. Jerry Brown has selected Jodi Remke, presiding judge of the State Bar Court of California, to lead the state’s ethics watchdog agency.

At the California Fair Political Practices Commission, Remke, 48, fills a post that has been empty for six months following the departure of Ann Ravel, who left for the Federal Election Commission in October.

Remke, a Democrat from Oakland, was a hearing judge at the State Bar Court from 2000 to 2006 and has been a presiding judge since 2006. The State Bar Court investigates complaints of attorney misconduct, and California is the only state with independent professional judges dedicated to ruling on attorney discipline cases.

Remke previously was an attorney with the California State Senate Judiciary Committee from 1997 to 2000 and at the Montana Legal Services Association from 1994 to 1996.

Guess What, Cliven Bundy? Your Nevada Ranch Is Also Getting a ‘Government Subsidy’

Bundy, of course, is the beneficiary of a huge subsidy—making a living, in part, off of cattle ranching on federal land, while refusing to pay over a million dollars in grazing fees, being in arrears, and then threatening to shoot federal agents after they first took him to court, then couldn’t collect and then tried to repo the cattle, which, I’ll just add one more time, were on federal land.

Ga.’s ‘Guns Everywhere’ Bill Signed Into Law

Georgia’s so-called “guns everywhere” bill has been signed into law, permitting guns in bars, schools, churches, and government buildings, with some exceptions.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed House Bill 60 on Wednesday, worrying critics who had dubbed the bill “guns everywhere” for its broad scope, reports The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The law, set to take effect July 1, has been praised by the National Rifle Association as “the most comprehensive pro-gun reform bill in history.”

So where will Georgians soon be able to bring their guns under the “guns everywhere” law?
