Alarcon Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alarcon has spent much of the last year fending off a grand jury indictment that accuses him of perjury and voter fraud. But that hasn’t slowed down his campaign plans.

Alarcon has begun sending out invitations for a campaign fundraiser in Sacramento -- this time for his 2012 bid for a state Assembly seat. Invites for the March 14 event, sent out by Alarcon campaign fundraiser Dwight Buchanan, calls for donors at $1,000 and sponsors at $3,900.
