The Tables Keep Turning on Esteban Nuñez, Son of Former CA Assembly Speaker

March 6th, 2010 · 4 Comments

A few weeks ago, I blogged about how former California Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuñez pulled papers to run for state treasurer in 2014. I speculated that whether we see Fabian Nuñez re-emerge in elected office will depend largely upon what happens with his son’s murder trail, which is scheduled to begin in May. Well, another one of his Esteban Nuñez’s friends has decided to testify against him according to the Los Angeles Weekly. Writer Christine Pelisek has been following this story, and she hit the nail on the head with this:

“Here’s why the political elite in California are watching this tragic murder case involving alleged killers who come from private schools and lives of power and privilege:

The case has elicited the involvement of California’s Democratic Party political stars, from Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to County Federation of Labor chief Maria Elena Durazo — all rallying around the accused while doing nothing to support the family of the widely-loved dead young man, who went, simply, by the name Lu.”

I think that Villaraigosa, Durazo, Romero, and De Leon should have said nothing publicly about Fabian Nuñez’s kid, Esteban and his trials and tribulations, especially without expressing sympathy for the real victim in this case, a deceased young man, Lu Santos. Politically a “no comment on this pending case” would probably have served all of these leaders better than expressing sympathy for Fabian Nuñez and his child, who is out on bail, in my view.

    Esteban Nunez MURDER starts on Monday April 12 2010 Dept 56 at 8 AM. Judge Robert F. O’Neill presiding. Do you want to know what the court finds? Did Esteban Nunez stab Luis Santos in the heart and tried to hide the evidence. Watch the testimony as the WITNESSES who were present described what happened. Why was Luis Santos Nunez murdered? Some say that Fabian called him a GABACHO for not allowing him to bring knives to a college party. What happened? Why stab?

    Is using the word a “pinche’ Gabacho” before killing somone, a HATE crime?

    UPDATE—TRIAL STARTS at 9 Am SAN DIEGO SUPERIOOR court DEPT 56 on Monday April 12, 2010. Will there be another news blackout? Why is Mayor Villgairosa supporting Esteban Nunez ? Is it because of politics? Is it because both men had the same girlfriend Mirthala Salinas of Televisa?

    My murderer was pardoned.

    Read my comments above APRIL 11 2010. I told you that Fabian Nunez Tony Villa and their buddies would PROVE that in the USA, as in Mexico, those with political power can murder at will.

    Will Governor Schwarzenegger be held responsible for the NEXT murder of Esteban? What will, Estaben use next time, another knife or a gun? When will our New Governor Brown appoint Esteban to some high paying political position to further help Fabian Nunez? It’s ironic that two witnesses go to prison , yet their gang leader RATS them out. Who started The Hazard Crew gang? We all know. Who posed with a bandana and a knife on Estebans Facebook page? Looks like Esteban! If it looks like a rat, smells like a rat…IT MUST BE A RAT. One of the family values taught by Mr. Fabian Nunez. But after sharing the same mistress with “the god father” Tony Villa…True look it up. Who is Mirthala? Who got sloppy seconds Fabian or Tony? Is this evidence of short man syndrome?
