“With election days away, California’s top political ethics cop abruptly quits”


The head of California’s campaign watchdog agency resigned her position on Tuesday.

Jodi Remke, who Gov. Jerry Brown appointed in 2014, stepped down as the chair of the Fair Political Practices Commission amid ongoing turmoil.

She often verbally sparred at public meetings with other commissioners, who were leading an effort to reduce her leadership role. The five-member commission was expected to vote next week to finalize a new power structure….

Wierenga said Remke accepted a new position as the presiding administrative law judge for appellate operations for the Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board.
