Carlos Bustamante, Santa Ana Councilmember, Resigns from County Job Over Sexytime Allegations

bustamante.jpg
The big political news of the day happened yesterday: SanTana councilmember Busty "Carlos" Bustamante resigned from his job at the county while it investigates allegations that Busty had mucho sexytime explosions on the job with multiple colleagues. There are already calls for Busty to resign his council seat, and only Brave New Urbanists will miss the pendejo. Regardless, this sordid episode is the final nail in the already-dead political career of Busty, once hailed as the Great Brown Hope for the Orange County Republican Party. But it's also a helpful reminder that the GOP is so desperate for any brownies in their ranks that they continually mine from the lowest, stupidest, most-perverted sectors of Latinos--and given our predilection for said attributes, you know they're digging low.

Think about it: who has the GOP hailed over the years as their rising Mexi stars? There was Gaddi Vasquez, who sneaked onto the OC Board of Supervisors only to resign in disgrace due to his role in the county's bankruptcy. SanTana Unified Board of Trustees member Rosemarie Avila never had any hope of going anywhere, but she remained for years the most prominent Latino politician. Arch Know Nothing Lupe Moreno still sits on one GOP Central Committee or other, but all she's good for is railing about illegals--oh, and she might be the only Republican in the county that knows how to speak Spanish, even as a pocha.

And now? Who's left as the OC's Great Brown Hope? Former weirdo Anaheim councilmember Bob Hernandez?  Former weirder Mission Viejo guy Something Ledesma? Some retrograde in La Habra, Stanton, or those old Chicano cities whose old-timers got it worst from the old establishment, yet inexplicably became Republican? Busty was the best of an incredibly slim lot...and now, nothing.

Bustamante had it going good, even laughably running for the OC Board of Supes at one point, but his oozing perviness torpedoed his career--first, with an ill-advised water-bra joke, and now with alleged peccadilloes. He was the Golden Child, and GOP bigwigs pinned their hopes on him. Thanks, Busty! Anyone really think an ambitious Mexi has any chance anymore in the OC GOP? Of course they do--when you're desperate for a future in this state, the GOP will trot out any wab with a pulse. And the rest of us laugh and cringe at the Latinos in the Dems who are barely any better...

Bustamante never did a thing to help the City of Santa Ana. He won't be missed. .....I was around Gaddi Vasquez in his prime....He was the nicest guy you would ever want to meet!...But he was so in over his head!...He should have remained a cop.....I would not bet on the GOP wanting Mexi's with them or not..... We have gone pass that point Gustavo....

August Pinochet would have done a better job. He improve the economy of Chile than Los Izquerdistas.

I prefer Martinez in New Mexico, much better on immigration. Plus Mexicans will never vote for a Cuban.

I think this Bustamante guy should change his name to Bustamanian and go up to Glendale to run for something. He totally  looks Armenian.

Pinochet and Franco, the two greatest Hispanic leaders since Cortes and Carlos Quinto.

I know the life is slow over in faux Appalachia, but Busty resigned yesterday, not Sept. 16. What are you using as your news source: goat entrails?

Mitch, 

I can get on board with that although Rubio is more our Generation, Martinez is a Baby boomer and there are  a lot less older voters that are as impressionable.  You need to get them in their mid 20's to early 30's when they are post college and begin to see the world for what it really is and not what their liberal professors told them.  People begin to lose the grand Idealism that they had in college after they settle for 35-40k a year and grind it out in the real world for a couple years... and then as they get into their 30's they approach their peak earning years and start to see that tax liability they have and wonder WTF all that money is going to... We call that low hanging fruit!

Dam, right. Augusto and Franco were the best. I miss those days.

Actually, as soon as I posted that comment I switched over to another news site and saw the following.

Asked during the forum if he would turn down an offer if the Republican presidential nominee asks him to, Rubio responded, “Yea, I believe so,” adding again, “the answer is gonna be no.”  

As he has in the past when asked, today Rubio spoke about the seriousness with which he takes his job as a U.S. Senator, held up as his reason why he is not considering the Vice Presidential position.“I’m not focused on that,” he said. “I don’t crave it. I wanted to be a United States Senator. I didn’t run for the Senate as an opportunity to have a launching pad for some other job. I think one of the things that I lament is that people somehow come to the conclusion that United States Senator is not enough. Listen, the United States Senate is still an important, I think very important institution.”Rubio said that a Senator can never get big things done in the Senate if they are “focused on it as a some sort of a launch pad for something else.”

Fair enough, but I still don't think Mexicans will vote for a Cuban, and there are a lot more of the former than the latter.
