Das Williams Downgraded to Smaller Office


Assemblymember Das Williams lost his office at the State Capitol after playing hooky on some important votes. He missed the last floor session before summer break on 7/3 because he was attending his mother-in-law’s wedding in Hawaii. According to the Los Angeles Times, speaker John Perez “can be touchy about members who are late or absent,” but his press secretary said Williams requested the move. He has been moved to a smaller office, and some of his aides will be exiled to an annex office.
