State Senator Tony Mendoza Will Take Leave of Absence

HMG-CN has learned that State Senator Tony Mendoza, under pressure from his party, will take a leave of absence for one month.

Sources are saying some Democrats wanted to wait for due process rather than expel Mendoza.


“I have agreed to take a leave of absence through January 26, 2018 so that I may continue to represent my District.

I am deeply disappointed that I was forced into this action without any due process, which is counter to the very essence of two significant pillars of our American society…. fairness and justice.

It was my hope that the Senate and Senate Rules Committee would have afforded me the opportunity to clear my name and, until that opportunity arose, treated me with the same standards applied to other Senators similarly accused.

This action today has set a dangerous precedent in that any legislator can be faced with any accusation from anyone and be subjected to a harsh penalty without the benefit of presenting his/her side of the story. I am hopeful that the Senate will be able to see the issue as important to its institutional credibility and sense of fairness.

Moving forward, however, I commit to cooperating with the investigation with the intent of clearing my name. I intend to return to again fully representing my constituents no later than February 1, 2018, including my committee chairmanship and membership.

I want to assure my constituents that in this period though January 26, 2018, I will continue to provide them with the full measure of service through the District and Capitol offices and their staff

    I just read the HMG story about Central Basin Water District’s disgusting pig Bob Apodaca who is President of that organization. I couldn’t believe the details CONFIRMED in the internal report essentially proving the allegation of the victim Ms. Lopez. Wow! Central Basin actually paid for this investigation and report as part of their due-diligence. So how is this guy not as hated as Harvey Weinstein??

    Yet here’s Tony Mendoza being rode like a steer at a rodeo for…what? The allegations against him are baseless. Nowhere did he proposition a woman, flash his privates or run his tongue down the throat of some young unexpecting pretty things. So why exactly does Mendoza deserve to have his entire career ruined while Bob Apodaca will go on costing ratepayers millions harassing the next woman in the office that’s 60 years younger than him!! I mean this pig molested his OWN STEPDAUGHTER while she was employed at Central Basin and it was witnessed by two people..not one, but TWO!

    So why isn’t Ms. Tampon Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia running to aid of other tampon-using females she’s empowered to protect and represent??? Something about this whole “who gets ruined vs. who gets a free pass” stinks.

    I’m positive Tony Mendoza is being targeted for whatever reason, most likely to hurt Kevin De Leon who is running against an entrenched woman like Feinstein. How dare he! Bottom line is this harassment game is serious business and there’s absolutely an agenda to purge men in power. I’m sorry, but woman are not all as saintly as they’re being portrayed these days. Be honest people, we weren’t born yesterday.

    Time to clean house!!! Mendoza, Garcia and Apodaca. Please Tony Mendoza is no alter boy. He is in over his head in the Senate. What a joke!!! I can’t believe three women would conspire together against him. Nor could I believe Diane Fienstein hatched this plan to make DeLeon look bad. He does that all to well by himself. Please “Common Sense Dude” or should we say Tony Mendoza nobody is buying your BS.

    Even before Central Basin’s report this paper was grilling Apodaca. With Mendoza there has only been two articles. The fix is in.
