Political-ish

Legislator Babylon Ft. Alex Vasser Part 2

Episode Summary

Polticalish continues our conversation with Alex Vassar. Part 2 will introduce you to many of the dynasties in CA political history. But we start discussing the changes to CA politics due to the transition from rural to urban communities, the 1960s court cases about “one man, one vote,” and the rise of the professional legislator. Then Alex talks about dynasties including the family that was CA Secretary of State for 60 years and how one AG represented CA for 40 years. Then we hear about the CA Constitutional offices that no longer exist and finish with a historical character we should know more about, Katherine Niehouse, the only women in the legislature for a decade.
