Janice Hahn sworn in as US congresswoman

WASHINGTON

House Speaker John Boehner administered Hahn's oath.

Hahn will represent California's 36th Congressional District. She defeated Republican opponent Craig Huey earlier this month in a special election to replace Jane Harman.

Hahn had served in the City Council since 2001. Her father was an L.A. County supervisor and her brother is a former mayor of L.A.

Hahn's departure marks the first time in 64 years that a member of the Hahn family would not be in elected office in L.A.
