LA Times report called out Governator on clemency for Fabian Nunez’s son

Los Angeles Times reporter Jack Dolan examined the reasons that former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger used to justify commuting the prison sentence for the son of a political ally and compared them to his past denials of clemency for similar crimes. The conclusion? Schwarzenegger’s explanations for commuting Esteban Nuñez’s sentence contradicted the reasons he used to deny parole for others who committed similar crimes as Nuñez. Schwarzenegger’s inconsistencies raised reasonable questions on whether (political and/or personal) favoritism played a role in his decision to significantly reduce the prison sentence of  Esteban Nuñez, the son of former state Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuñez. Daddy Nuñez is now a partner at Mercury Public Affairs, a political lobbying firm with close ties to Schwarzenegger and his former staffers, and he was caught trying to give a Kindle to an official at Mule Creek State Prison where Esteban is serving his 8-year sentence.
