Stupid Ass of the Week
Thanks to Petrafied in the City for giving us the head's up on this story:
Seems our favorite spendthrift Fabian Núñez sees a "racial bias in attacks on his spending", reports the SacBee.
A few classic nuggets from the article:
"Everyone's done it like this," Núñez said of previous legislative leaders. "The difference is there are some in politics who want to judge me in a certain manner.
"Because of the fact I am Mexican, they think I have to sleep under a cactus and eat from taco stands."
Hey Stupid Ass, you may get away playing the racial card with the Gringos, Bro, but not with me. You know full well no one expects you to sleep under a cactus and eat at a taco truck, although the latter sounds like a damn fine option to me, but then... I'm not used to $$$$$$ meals at the French Laundry.
Nice way to race bait, tho'.
"The only thing that really results out of this is that groups that don't like Latinos use this as a weapon to inflame anti-Mexican, anti-Latino politics," he said.
What the hell are you talking about? You get called out for your spending--money that was entrusted to you by the people of California [ed. my bad, I meant CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS]-- and right away you go crying like a little boy, hiding behind your abuelitas skirts... blaming the White Man for beating you down?
Grow up, Fabian. Be a man and own up to the fact that you blew it. Plain and simple. Pendejo. Sin Vergüenza!
Hector Barajas, communications director of the California Republican Party, called Núñez's racial comments disgraceful and disheartening.
"Questioning someone's expenses, especially when they're in public
office, is something the public should do," he said.
Kevin Spillane, a GOP strategist who ran the campaign against Proposition 93, noted that the campaign also accused President Pro Tem Don Perata, who is white, of political corruption.
"Political corruption is colorblind," Spillane said.
