TMZ caught Orange County Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez on video in Denver at the DNC yesterday. She's certainly hopped on something (life, baby!), probably just general excitement of the atmosphere over there. However, it's just more fun to call her stoned and "four lattes past hyper," as TMZ proclaimed. Or maybe it's the water in Orange County.

Also: TMZ has the 911 tape for Christopher Stampolis, the former head honcho of the California Democratic Council and a Hilary Clinton superdelegate. It's a he said-she said case of assault stemming from a few years ago, but he's the one paying the $35,000 bill per the result of the arbitration.
