Wife Beating Republican Prosecutor?

Orange County, California is the bastion of Republican politics in the Golden State. Newport Beach is a key city in the county where the wealthy and the beautiful live.

Now scandal has hit the Newport Beach City Attorney, a loyal member of the Rove Republican Racket. The Los Angeles Times reports:
Newport Beach City Atty. David R. Hunt will go on voluntary administrative leave a little more than one week after he was arrested on suspicion of felony spousal abuse. Hunt, 52, was arguing with his son at his Santa Ana home on March 14 when his wife intervened and Hunt struck her, causing her to hit a table and then the floor, police said. The 49-year-old woman had a cut on her arm and a large bump on the back of her head, police said. She was taken to a hospital for treatment. In a recording of the 911 call, one of Hunt’s sons can be heard telling a dispatcher “my dad just went crazy, he pushed my mom down and started going after my brother.”
