Carlos Bustamante, Santa Ana Councilman, Hasn't Convinced Veteran DA Investigators on Nasty Sex Stories
|Bustamante: Do you know who I am? Do you think I'm sexy? No? Let me whip out this tiny Twinkie! Why are you looking away? Look here at my Twinkie, damn you! Michael! Mike Harrah, pay them to look at my Twinkie!|
In the shot, a handcuffed Bustamante looks directly into the camera of a photographer as if he's angry or frustrated or desirous of additional taxpayer-funded ejaculation when he was taken into custody.
But the picture--taken after the Republican councilman ate lunch with Santa Ana City Manager Paul Walters--contains potent information.
And it's probably not good news for Bustamante, who is accused of forcing county employees to watch him masturbate at work.
The law enforcement officer holding Bustamante's arm in the photo is Damon Tucker, a veteran investigator with the Orange County District Attorney's office.
With the assistance of several other superb DA investigators, Tucker took the lead in Bustamante's case.
That's bad news for the onetime up and coming Republican politician known to be a servant (slave?) to wealthy, Newport Beach real estate developer Mike Harrah.
Tucker--a former Irvine Police Department cop--is a low-key, media-resistant but excellent investigator not prone to mistakes.
