TAYLOR retorted t h a t
although she has proposed many
education reforms, she has sup-
ported many other types of re-
forms. She said that fact
that her proposals are accept-
ed prove her effectiveness. She
added that she has been ap-
pointed to chair the Budget
Commission w h i c h Taylor
claims is the most important
job of the Commissioners. "If
people on the Board of Com-
missioners thought I was a lit-
tle off the wall, they would not
have given me this important
job," she argued.
In response to a question
about their methods of repre-
sentation, Taylor said, "One of
the major roles of a represen-
tative is that we have to lis-
ten to people," and be available
to them. She says her role is
to "represent you, not just to
educate you and lay a lot of
heavy stuff on you," referring
to Bullard's earlier statement
about the importance of edu-
cating the public on the issue.
Bullard claimed he has a
"function to lead and set forth
an ideal." He said he "pro-
poses ideas for how we can live

SACRAMENTO, Calif. 5" Ed
Reinecke said yesterday that
he will return to California later
this week "and continue my
duties as lieutenant governor"
after appealing his perjury con-
Reinecke issued the statement
through his Sacramento office
in response to inquiries about
whether he would resign.
Earlier, a political r e f o r m
group, People's Lobby, filed suit
in Los Angeles Superior Court
seeking to stop payment of
Reinecke's $35,000-a-year state
Republican leaders, including
Vice President Gerald Ford and
Gov. Ronald Reagan, declined
to comment on whether Rei-
necke, convicted Saturday by a
federal j u r y in Washington,
should resign or be removed
from office.
Ford, in San Francisco to ad-
dress a conference of the Na-
tional Urban League, told a
news conference: "It's a very
sad, sad situation and it's up to
him to decide whether to stay
in office or not"
Reagan had said Saturday he
would have no comment about
Reinecke's tenure in office until
he spoke with Reinecke.
Reinecke said in his state-
ment that his staff would meet
with the staff of Atty. Gen.
Evelle Y o u n g e r, California's
chief legal officer. Younger
said he will rule within two to
three days on whether Reinecke
can legally retain his office af-
ter conviction on a felony.
The state constitution snei-
fies laws be adopted to bar from
office "persons convicted of
bribery, perjury, forgery, mal-
feasance in office or other high
"We expect to have a precise
and definite answer in the next
two or three days," Younger

said in a telephone interview.
Reinecke was, convicted of
committing perjury during testi-
mony in April 1972 before the
U.S. Senate Judiciary Commit-
tee, The case involved Rei-
necke's answers to questions on
when he told then-Atty. Gen.
John Mitchell

BOTH candidates spoke about
reorganizing the public utilities.
Candidate Bullard said he has
proposed that "employes and
consumers elect the directors
of public utilities" in an effort
to democratize the decision-
making process.
But Taylor said this system
was "unmitigated tokenism"
and that the "answer is the pub-
lic ownership of those public
utilities." She named places
where public ownership has
been attempted in the United
States and said she has testified
four times before the Michigan
Public Services Commission on
this subject.
Bullard incurred anger over
his proposal to "mobilize a
statewide consciousness". One
person said that Bullard "has
the public image of a buffoon"
after having made such contro-
versial actions as showing the
film Deep Throat and smoking
marijuana in public. He asked
Bullard how he could ever
hope to establish a grassroot
consciousness with 'this reputa-
Bullard replied that "one can
never be sure" of the outcome
of such actions and slurred over
the accusation by speaking
about the need for censorship
'When asked whether in the
event of her defeat Taylor, who
has attacked Bullard through-
out her campaign, would be
able to support him as a fellow
Democrat and liberal, Taylor
replied "1 don't know is my
honest response."

Connally was accused of ly-
ing a second time on April 11,
when he told the grand jury a
somewhat different story. Con-
nally then said he spoke with
Jacobsen three times before his
grand jury testimony, and that
during the first talk Jacobsen
said he had been subpoenaed
to testify about the $10,000.
The indictment said that Con-
nally and Jacobsen actually
met or talked five times before
Connally's first grand jury ap-
IT SAID Connally gave Jacob-
sen $10,000 before either of
them had testified, and later
gave him another $10,000 two
days before Jacobsen led an
FBI agent to the bank vault.
According to previously pub-
lished reports Connally had
been worried that the first
batch of bills were too new to
fit the alleged cover story. The
second batch was no better, as
it turned out.
Investigators found that 34 of

them were still in federal banks
when Jacobsen swore he receiv-
ed them and put them into the
box, according to the final re-
port of the Senate Watergate
Committee. One of the bills
didn't circulate until 1973, the
committee said.
Based on this evidence, the
grand jury indicted Jacobsen
for perjury last Feb. 21, but the
indictment was dismissed on a
Jacobsen then worked out an
agreement with Watergate pro-
secutors to plead guilty to a
single bribery count and to tes-
tify against Connally provided

the government would drop the
perjury case and an unrelated
indictment in a Texas savings-
and-loan scandal, according to
informed sources.
Jacobsen is scheduled to plead
to the bribery charge on Aug.
7. Connally is scheduled to
answer the charges against him
Aug. 9.
If convicted on all counts,
Connally cotuld be sentenced to
a maximum of 19 years in pri-
son and fined up to $50,000. Ja-
cobsen faces a maximum pen-
alty on the bribe count of two
years in prison and a $10,000
