City of Santa Ana: Not Investigating Bustamante | The Liberal OC

Media_httpimagesonset_ebydv

There’s no evidence that Bustamante’s county job and the investigation by the county constitutes a violation of the city’s code of ethics. If the county fires Bustamante pending the results of their investigation, its hard to pin down a reason for the city council to call for his resignation from the council. If Bustamante is fired, a resignation is appropriate to allow him the time needed to repair his personal and professional reputation.

It was only after the hearing that we see other press reports that suggest that the […]

    Yesterday, the Joint Legislative Audit Committee and Assembly Budget Subcommittee #5 on Public Safety held hearings on the recent audit of the Judicial Council and the AOC.  State Auditor Elaine Howle did not pull any punches.  She painted an ugly picture of an agency that has lost its way, one that has strayed from its […]

    Yesterday you heard judge Marsha Slough and Martin Hoshino sit in front of an assembly subcommittee and represent that they’re taking seriously the auditors findings and executing on a strategy to address them. But the two judges McCabe and Wachob were brought aboard the judicial council three years ago with great fanfare and they were […]
