Mayor Villaraigosa has another News Reporter Girlfriend

June 2nd, 2009 · 28 Comments

Without going into too much detail because the LA Times does a great job of it here, I thought that I would briefly comment on Mayor Villar and his new novia. It seems that despite being branded a “failure” in both his recent political activities and even in his personal life with his yet to [...]

Read the Nuñez criminal complaint in its entirety!

December 4th, 2008 · 48 Comments

SignonSanDiego.com has posted the criminal complaint against Esteban Nuñez and his friends. You can read it here. Facing 25 years to life for murder doesn’t sound like something that most children of parents who earn $150K per year probably envision. Today Esteban Nuñez and his three other co-defendants pleaded not guilty, and each has a [...]

Just as highfalutin Fabian Nuñez enters private life, his son is arrested on suspicion of homicide!

December 3rd, 2008 · 16 Comments

Highfalutin Fabian Nuñez is going to need money more now than ever, as the lawyers start billing on his son’s case. A few weeks ago, I read a small news item about Esteban Nuñez, the 19 year old son of the former California Assembly Speaker, being questioned in relation to a stabbing death of a [...]

Monday Roundup Post in the Latino Political World

November 10th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I’m a little late to the party on this one, but Mayor Villaraigosa’s ex-squeeze, Mirthala Salinas, is pregnant, and she seems happy working at a local AM Spanish language radio station in Los Angeles. She certainly kicked up a lot of dust for reporting on the mayor’s failed marriage, while involving herself with him at the [...]

Villaraigosa snubbed at the DNC and lags on transportation issues back in LA

August 31st, 2008 · 6 Comments

Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa was not given an opportunity to give a high profile speech at the DNC last week because he was put in the same category as John Edwards, the subjects of recent cheating scandals that erupted in the public eye. So we’re a little over a year after the affair between Mayor [...]

John Edwards affair – Learn from his mistake

August 10th, 2008 · 8 Comments

I really like John Edwards. He talks a good talk, is easy on the eyes, and seems to truly care about addressing some of the income inequalities in this country. His wife is articulate, supporting, and a fighter. And he has photogenic family. When rumors started to surface last fall about a mistress, I would [...]

Late to the party on this one, but Mirthala Salinas (aka Villaraigosa’s former mistress) engaged!

April 22nd, 2008 · 4 Comments

Mirthala Salinas, Mayor Villaraigosa’s ex-girlfriend and former Telemundo reporter, sure doesn’t waste time hooking it up, as she has now told the press that she is engaged to an Israeli-born real estate agent, Yanni Raz. Last summer’s drama with the mayor still lingers in the minds of many. She also expressed regret for hurting the [...]

Villarsalinas – officially over! LA Mayor is single again.

November 24th, 2007 · 5 Comments

I had a feeling that this relationship between Mayor Villaraigosa and Mirthala Salinas would be rather short lived, and in keeping with the latest rumors, two sources have confirmed to the LA Times that the relationship ended earlier this fall. I’m sure that both parties are kicking themselves as this drama wasn’t worth the damage, [...]
