CAPITOL WEEKLY PODCAST: Sacramento lobbyist David Quintana joins us to talk about The Bash – the blowout party formerly known as the Back-to-Session-Bash – that will happen Wednesday, June 29. The Bash is a who’s who of California capitol folks, eager to get out and let their hair down for a night of dancing, drinking and speculating about who the surprise musical guest will be. (Last year: Too Short. This year: who knows? David’s not saying.) The conversation went far afield, covering everything from The Archies to the Darien Gap to lobbying in the new legislative Swing Space.
Also, we offer up our choice for Who Had the Worst Week in California Politics, and this week is a DOOZY.
