News has come that City Attorney Carmen "Nuch" Trutanich is filing papers for an exploratory committee to run for District Attorney if current D.A. Steve Cooley decides to retire.
I like Steve Cooley, but if he wants to end his long career, I think Nuch would be a fine replacement.
Nuch will always be my hero for threatening to throw City Council Member Jan "The Hamburglar" Perry in jail over her misbehavior in city dealings with the investment group AEG.
He also ended the career of hack politician and former 5th District Council Member Jack Weiss.
That, alone, is something we can never thank him for enough.
