Highfalutin Fabian Nuñez becomes a lobbyist! Pay it forward Louis Vuitton!

November 29th, 2008 · 6 Comments

Former California Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuñez (D-Los Angeles), aka Highfalutin Fabian for his big spending ways, will become a lobbyist with Mercury Public Affairs in Sacramento, a Republican dominated firm. I think that the lobbyist’s life will suit Fabian Nuñez well. This is a guy who was completely comfortable with spending $2,562 from his campaign kitty at Louis Vuitton in Paris for “office expenses.” What’s wrong with going to Office Max or Staples for “office expenses”? For the life of me, I still cannot imagine what kind of office supplies he needed at Louis Vuitton.

Speaking of Vuitton, I frequent an art house movie theatre that often uses this Louis Vuitton commercial as a preview to the previews. I have often wondered why they just don’t cast Nuñez as a spokesman to handle their government related accounts in their next round of commercials. He would add a little Latino flavor to their marketing, picking up where J. Lo left off after the luxury leather good company dumped her.

    Do you think Fabian Nunez is clearing a path for Antonio Villaraigosa? If the Obama Administration can’t find a spot for him, he’s likely to politically fizzle out. Then again he has to pass an FBI screening test, and learn how to operate in an environment filled with political idealists. The career dilemmas of Antonio Villaraigosa and all that hot air coupled with forgotten promises that he’s been spouting to his audience throughout the years. Too bad that whole Bush aura is going to be passé in thirty days. Lots of career politicians are going to feel out of place. Fabian Nunez correctly read the tea leaves. Will Antonio Villaraigosa?

    “…he’s likely to politically fizzle out. Then again he has to pass an FBI screening test…”

    I think it would be better for Nuñez to enter the private sector.

    About the screening test, I agree. But there is serious doubt as to whether Obama could pass it too.

    You’re joking again…aren’t you? Or do you need to call Paul Rodriguez and get his opinion?

    Fabian has even the name to go with his taste: Fabian sounds like a hairdresser with exquisite taste or the younger son or brother of a mafiosi.
