SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The leader of California's state Assembly has formally reprimanded an assemblywoman and her chief of staff for inappropriate behavior.
An investigation found an unwanted hug and kiss from Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo and coarse sexual comments from her top aide.
Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon chastised his fellow Democrat from the Los Angeles area and chief of staff George Esparza.
