Re Senate should expel Wright if he fails to quit (Editorials, Jan. 29): Sen. Roderick Wright was convicted for perjury and fraud. Assemblyman Richard Pan was not charged with a crime. Both men had similar intent and motive for switching residences during an election cycle. Wright may be unemployed and could face eight years in prison. Pan is a candidate for state Senate in 2014. Wright owned the home he moved into to qualify to run in 25th Senate District. Pan purchased his condo to qualify to run in the 9th Assembly District, and took per diem from the state after he switched his residence from his house in the Natomas area. Wright is guilty of a crime committed against the state. Pan may have had an ethics lapse against the state.
