Bill Emmerson

The announcement by California State Senator Bill Emmerson (R-Redlands), that he was resigning his post effective essentially immediately, took everyone by surprise last week.

But, not surprisingly, no one believes the “I’m tired of politics” line Emmerson is dishing out as his reason for departing one year into a new four-year term.

Emmerson really loves politics in the state capitol, and we mean he really does!

He’s been tight-lipped, for good reason, in discussing his departure with local media outlets. But secrets, especially those kept in Sacramento, never stay secret.

The real true reason has already hit the rumor mill, and it’s a whopper. But, it’s nothing out of the norm for Sacramento politics.
