Don’t forget that Nguyen endorsed Bustamante when he last ran for reelection in 2008. And she tried to stop the attempt to strip O.C. Assistant CEO Rob Richardson of his raise.
What does this all mean for Bustamante? I had heard he was going to run for a third term on the Santa Ana City Council. But now the whole mess is once again on the front burner. Hopefully a candidate will emerge to take him out. Better yet, Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido needs to take him aside and make it clear that he has to go.
