Janis Berman has found a new way to stand by her man. She's co-chairing a "Women for Berman" campaign group and has sent emails to supporters of her husband, Democratic Rep. Howard Berman, as he fights for his political life in the fall election.
"I'm proud of the work Howard has done over the years, but his continuous and unfaltering support of women's rights and equality stand out most to me," Janis Berman wrote in announcing the launch of the campaign group and a website, Women for Berman. Among the 15 other co-chairs are actress Morgan Fairchild, former Burbank Mayor Mary Lou Howard and politically prominent attorney Lisa Specht.
