Bermudez leads the term-limits two-step
This week, Assemblyman Rudy Bermudez, D-Norwalk, became the latest poster child for legislators trying to stay in office. First, he filed a petition to recount the votes in his razor-thin loss to fellow Assemblyman Ron Calderon, D-Montebello, for state Senate in June. Second, he filed paperwork to run for the Assembly again--in 2012.
That would be six years, two gubernatorial and two presidential elections away. According to the secretary of state's office, no other candidate has filed papers to run for any office in the state in that election cycle.
"It is just to move the money around. It is just a placeholder," says Bermudez. "It's a placeholder. It's placeholder. It's placeholder. I don't think there is much of a story there."
