Jensen Restitution Set at $190,000
Lost in this week's Democratic avalanche was the restitution order turned out by the judge in the caucus scandal case on Tuesday. Judge Steven Ebert handed out a total of $306,391 in restitution to the three defendants convicted of orchestrating an operation to use state workers on state time for campaign activities.
Ebert ordered former GOP Assembly Speaker Scott Jensen pay back $190,521. Former Assembly Majority Leader Steve Foti and caucus worker Sherry Schultz were ordered to pay $57,935 each.
