Who beat up Rocco?

Last night’s Santa Ana City Council meeting drew an interesting crowd, but when I saw Steve Rocco, the Orange School Board member who is facing a recall, I did a double take.

He was not in good shape. His nose was bandaged and he looked like someone lit into him.

I overhead someone after the meeting who asked Rocco what happened. His response was that the Santa Ana police beat him up and Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido is trying to kill him.

Rocco ran against Pulido for the Mayor’s office a few years ago. But this turn of events certainly is a new wrinkle…

I am only surprised that he did not blame Rancho Santiago Community College District Trustee John Hanna for his broken beak! (For those who don’t know, Rocco blames Hanna for everything short of global warming).

Rocco did not address the City Council. He left shortly after their budget vote.
