Assemblyman Ed Chau of Monterey Park

A Democratic assemblyman became so verbally abusive toward Secretary of State workers this spring that one of them pressed a “panic button,” drawing security officers who escorted the legislator out of the building.

Secretary of State Alex Padilla sent a letter to Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon in which he described Assemblyman Ed Chau of Monterey Park as having become “alarmingly irate in front of several staff.”

Chau was upset at the ballot designation of his main Republican opponent, Burton Brink. Brink, who retired last year after 29 years a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy, describes himself in a ballot designation as a “retired sheriff’s sergeant.”
