NEW HAVEN, Conn. A California congresswoman whose husband was indicted on theft and conspiracy charges in Connecticut cited an unexpected family matter Thursday in withdrawing as a candidate for chair of the House Democratic Caucus.
U.S. Rep. Linda Sanchez, now the caucus vice chair, is married to James Sullivan, one of five people indicted on theft and conspiracy charges this week in connection with a public electricity cooperative and $800,000 worth of trips to the Kentucky Derby and other locations.
Sanchez, who represents the 38th District in the Los Angeles area, wrote in a letter to fellow Democrats, Unfortunately, an unexpected family matter requiring my attention compels me to withdraw my name as a candidate for Chair of the Democratic Caucus.
She said later Thursday in a statement, Earlier today I learned that my husband is facing charges in Connecticut. After careful consideration of the time and energy being in leadership demands, I have decided that my focus now needs to be on my son, my family, and my constituents in California.

But not your hubby?...................
She ought to be prosecuted for too many trips to the Buffet .
Why pull out?
After all, as Mayor Richard J. Daley used to say, “An indictment is not a conviction.”
Translation: We never expected to get caught, he's guilty as hell, and I helped...
I hope Rep. Dornan cracked a smile at all this. He got screwed, to say the least.

Translation, I need to make sure the bodies stay buried.
You have a much better than average chance of being correct. I’d say approaching 100%.
Dornan got screwed by jer older sister Loretta.
Corruption fed the family pig, so she may have some ‘splainin’ to do.
LAM (laughing at myself)
I stand corrected.
Is that a pod of orcas?
Laughing at myself...
Didn’t Billy Idol have a hit with that?
Coast to coast corruptions...Nothing new from the Dems...
They look like they took quite a few trips back to the food trough as well.
B1 Bob was thrown under the bus by the eGOP
Obvious voter fraud but no one they would challenge the false outcome of this election
It was the political correct thing to do as Sanchez had just changed her last name from a gringo to a Hispanic (HERspanic?) last name
The scaredy cat republicans were concerned they would be FALSELY accused of racism and hid under their desks.
