Looks good for Romero-Dutton law: It bans ousted California politicians from getting unemployment
Yes, you read it right. Thanks to a particularly bombastic politician in Rosemead, a special law has to be passed in California to stop ousted incumbents, who lose fair and square at the ballot box, from trying to cling to the public trough a little longer by claiming that they are "unemployed."
And one guy is to blame for all this:
It was all so deeply embarrassing that a bipartisan duo, Los Angeles senator Romero, a Democrat, and Rancho Cucamonga state Sen. Bob Dutton, a Republican, introduced Senate Bill 1211 to clarify: uh, NO, a failed politician is not "unemployed." He's just a failure.
