hey dad I'm in jail

You Want a Job, Don’t You? Super-Hot Orange County Republican Basically Sexed Up Whole Office

Moistened pantiesCurrent Republican Santa Ana City Councilman and recently resigned in disgrace Orange County executive manager for public works Carlos Bustamante is in so much trouble, you guys! After he made pretty much the whole office do sex on him in exchange for promotions, he had to resign his sweet $178,000 gig with the county, and now all the mad supervisors have sent his case to the District Attorney, for JAIL.

From the Orange County Register’s original story on the whole sexy mishigas:

A second anonymous letter sent to the county and obtained by The Watchdog detailed sexual allegations against Bustamante, including naming four current and former female O.C. Public Works employees with whom Bustamante allegedly had romantic encounters in his office over the past several years. All four were subordinate to Bustamante.

According to the latest letter, Bustamante and one of the women “met more than a dozen times a month for more than a year either in his office or her palatial quarters he built for her.” The letter writer also promises “steamy, erotic pictures” of the sexual encounters will be soon posted on social media.


Other women named in the letter were promoted in the department in exchange for sexual favors for Bustamante, the letter alleges.

    "A second anonymous letter sent to the county and obtained by The Watchdog detailed sexual allegations…"

    Nice going, Editrix. Can we call you "Anonymous," too?

    1. actor212

      Really! I mean, it's only four over "several" years that he's harassed!

      Why, back in the Eighties, you know, when Reagan was president and men were men?…I harassed four in an hour!

    1. Fare la Volpe

      Kissinger pulled poon like nobody's business.

      Some guys just have game. Tons of money, also.

        1. Guppy

          Nah. Your average piece of barely-legal tail has never heard the name before.

          He could still be making the rounds in the cougar circuit, though.

    2. Chichikovovich

      met … either in his office or her palatial quarters he built for her.

      I have a conjecture.

  2. Callyson

    This looked like a boring sex scandal for a Republican until the following:
    Bustamante quietly resigned in 2008 from two state commissions he was appointed to by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, after the Los Angeles Times quoted him suggesting that Paul Walters, a candidate for Orange County sheriff, could’ve gotten the job if he had breast implants.
    So dude swings both ways. OK, *now* he measures up to GOP standards…

  3. elviouslyqueer

    Bustamente's defense will doubtless be something along the lines of "And I would've gotten away with it too, if it hadn't been for those meddling sluts and prostitutes."

  4. Jerri

    Nothin' says "romance" like probably coerced sex acts with your boss in a county government office.

    1. kingofmeh

      i don't understand why squeamish editors use "romantic" in this context. "sexual" is already all over the article. whatever encounters were had with mr. bustamante, i doubt any was "romantic."

  5. metamarcisf

    Big deal. On the other hand, if I hear that the marxist Obama administration enabled Mr. Bustamante's sex addiction by providing free birth control for his victims, then I think Mr. Limbaugh should weigh in.

  6. dadanarchist

    I've got $10 down that his emails contain numerous sexual puns derived from his own last name, because he looks like that species of smug asshole.

    1. gurukalehuru

      True story. Mickey Mouse was talking to his divorce lawyer one day and the lawyer said "Mr. Mouse, I am truly shocked. You mean to tell me that you want to divorce your wife, Minnie Mouse, idol and role model to millions of American girl children, on the grounds of INSANIITY?"
      And Mickey says "INSANIITY?! I didn't say anything about insanity, I just said she was fucking goofy!

      1. MoeDeLawn

        My wife said she'd kick me out of the compound if I told that one again. But it just sits in your craw – good, old jokes gotta be FREE! Thanks for some vicarious relief.

      1. elviouslyqueer

        I was shocked, SHOCKED to learn recently that "taco" is a euphemism for vajayjay. Needless to say, all those El Chico Taco Party kits I had stored in the pantry went directly to the trash.

    1. actor212

      I want to have sex with this comment, cheat on it with another of your comments, then invite the two together for a threesome involving whipped cream and a dwarf.

      1. Lascauxcaveman

        LOL, but technically, the dwarf makes it a foursome.

    "Encounters" in the office are rarely romantic.

    1. YasserArraFeck

      I have to disagree – nothing says "romance" like skulking out of the copy room trying to wipe toner off your ass

  8. Oblios_Cap

    "How you doin'" must be a better pickup line that I remember.

    Seriously – women are accusing a GOP of sexytiming? Only in Calfornia.

  9. Beetagger

    This is what happens when someone from So. Cal. buys Wonkette…. news about a place I fled from 40 years ago.

  10. SorosBot

    But of course Republicans will continue to say this is equivalent to Bill Clinton or John Edwards, continuing to ignore the difference between legal, though sleazy, consensual affairs and illegal sexual harassment.

  11. Oblios_Cap

    “met more than a dozen times a month for more than a year either in his office or her palatial quarters he built for her.”

    I need some harrassment. Where's the Editrix?

  12. bumfug

    That's why these guys are right-wingers, power and money are the only things that will ever get them laid.

  13. FlownOver

    His best line: "You might be sucking the cock of the Governor of California. Then again you might not. I hope you are, so you can have a promotion."

  14. prommie

    Corelation is not causation. It could be that he happened to be attracted to women who were competent and had a good work ethic, and those therefore were the ones he had sex with, and also, promoted. Why, it is sexist and misogynistic to suggest that these women did not deserve their promotions.

    1. GOPCrusher

      Mr. Bustamante has such a magnetic personality that these women could not help but throw themselves onto his turgid, throbbing, penis.

  15. proudgrampa

    Out of curiosity, I tried to translate Bustamante.

    busto = chest (male) or bust (female)

    amante = lover


  16. BaldarTFlagass

    OT, but 6 posts in 4 hours, all by our new ubermistress, amazing!! Did she fire everyone else? Also, it seems as if the sidebar stories over on the right side of the page got fired too.

    1. OneYieldRegular

      Sidebar libel! (er, I'm actually happy to see those go, though this new posting pace is severely cutting into my ability to get anything done).

  17. owhatever

    Worked okay for Newt, but I fear this guy is just going to have to be spending more time with his family, which he loves more than anything other than screwing the cat.

  18. Barrelhse

    The Orange Co. DA is named Rackauckas- ROCKY Rackauckas?
    There was only one joker in LA sensitive enough to wear that scent…

  19. bringmeanaxe

    Those councilors should never have called the District Attorney. We're supposed to 'move forward', not 'look backward'.

  20. poncho_pilot

    Orange County: too douchey to be San Diego, too backwards to be San Francisco, too white to be L.A.

  21. CessnaDriver

    I actually refused to have sex with a girlfriend in OC because I wanted to be able to say that I never had sex in OC.
