The district attorney is going full Eliot Ness on elected officials who don't live where they say they do. Following LA City Councilmember Richard Alarcon's indictment last month, state Senator Roderick Wright has been arraigned on eight felony charges, including "filing a false declaration of candidacy, voter fraud and perjury beginning in 2007, when he changed his voter registration to run for the Legislature," reports the LAT. Wright claims to live in his district in Inglewood, but the DA suspects he lives in Baldwin Hills. [LAT]
