Reader poll: Richardson's foreclosure -- personal or political?

May 27, 2008 |  1:09 pm

Bloggers' note and back-story: Rep. Laura Richardson (D-Long Beach), responding to a report in Capitol Weekly, acknowledged last week that a home she purchased in Sacramento in 2007 had gone into foreclosure this spring.  Richardson has said the foreclosure was "improper" because she had reached an agreement on a loan modification to keep the home. The Daily Breeze of Torrance has reported she was also in default on two Southern California homes this spring, although neither of those has gone into foreclosure. The Associated Press has reported Richardson owed nearly $9,000 in property taxes on the Sacramento home.
