March 29th, 2011 · 16 Comments

As I mentioned a few days ago, Representative Loretta Sanchez was scheduled to give a keynote address on the DREAM Act at Pomona College on Monday, but instead of talking about the DREAM Act, she gave the students an overview of her life story and the story of how she got into Congress. As you […]

Rep. Linda Sanchez becomes ranking member of House Ethics Committee

January 29th, 2011 · 1 Comment

The LA Times reports that Congresswoman Linda Sanchez is replacing Rep. Zoe Lofgren as the ranking member of the House Ethics Committee. I think that this should be interesting. I find Linda Sanchez to be more on top of policy matters than her sister, Loretta. Back in June, Linda Sanchez made a statement about the […]

About a year ago, Representative Sanchez was mum on her relationship with her former military escort, turned lobbyist John (Jack) Einwechter. But today Roll Call is reporting (via the OC Register) that the Congresswoman is engaged according to tips received by the Capitol Hill paper. My own sources tell me that the couple became engaged […]

Some thoughts on the Loretta Sanchez Victory Last Night

November 3rd, 2010 · 9 Comments

October 15th, 2010 · No Comments

I wasn’t able to make it to the Bill Clinton/Loretta Sanchez rally, but thank goodness for twitter. I was able to find Bill Clinton’s speech courtesy of @JeffreyFriend. It was the standard Democratic candidate stump speech with some reminders of what the GOP agenda may be should it regain control of the House, what Clinton […]

Loretta Sanchez Finally Debates Van Tran

October 13th, 2010 · 15 Comments

Much has been made in recent weeks about the close congressional race between Rep. Loretta Sanchez and Van Tran, especially in light of the horrible comments the congresswoman made about the Vietnamese trying to take this particular seat. I truly believe that Congresswoman Sanchez would not be in this political dog fight if she had […]

July 30th, 2010 · 3 Comments

By Kyle de Beausset: Today marks the completion of the second week of the DREAM Now series. I am sorry I was not able to get a letter out on Wednesday.  Too much travel and not enough sleep led me to come down with a soar throat and a fever on Tuesday.  Thankfully, I’m starting […]
