State Capitol building in Sacramento

A pedestrian walks out of the State Capitol building in Sacramento. Last month, the Democrats lost their supermajority in the Senate when they were hit with the double-whammy departures of Sen. Roderick Wright of Inglewood, who took a paid leave of absence following his conviction on perjury and voter fraud charges, and Sen. Ronald Calderon of Montebello, who also took a paid leave after he was indicted on federal bribery and corruption charges.
