Unlike the former cocaine addict philanderer who has "platonic sex with friends, lesbians and straight, whatever" who appointed State Bar Court Judge JoAnn Remke to the bench, Antonio Villaraigosa is in a league of his own -- a serial seducer who has been perpetually involved in scandals, sexual and otherwise.
For example, while carrying on an affair with Mirthala Salinas, a Telemundo reporter, she assumptively reported that the mayor was having an affair, neglecting to mention that the affair was with her. The latest and most recent scandal the Mayor is involved in relates to free tickets to various events, for which his friends in Sacramento help foot the legal bill.
At the age of 21, Villaraigosa fathered the first of his first four children, after having been involved with the mother for only six weeks. At age 25, his second daughter was born to another woman. In 1987, at age 34, Villaraigosa married Corina Raigosa, who formally ended their relationship in 2009. Villaraigosa is is pictured above with his most recent partner, Lu Parker.

Villaraigosa Goes to Sacramento, Alone.
In 1994, Villaraigosa ran for California State Assembly. After celebrating his victory, Villaraigosa skipped town for a few days, accompanied by the wife of his closest friend, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge. Villaraigosa defended his actions, saying, "It is a matter of the heart.” Despite this turn of events, Villaraigosa and his wife reconcile.
Accrding to Tony Castro, a Los Angeles-based author and journalist, "in the subsequent years, after their reconciliation, friends recall that she was the reluctant political wife, rarely with Villaraigosa in Sacramento while he was in the State Assembly and usually only seen in public with him during local campaign appearances...often overlooked, say friends, is the extent of Corina Villaraigosa's heartbreak, her sense of personal humiliation among friends in the traditionally conservative, Catholic enclave of the Latino Eastside and the emotional journey she went through to accept her husband back amid gossip and rumors of continuing womanizing."
