Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

nunez.jpgWhile vacationing in London, former California Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez proposed Thursday to Gabriela Dias, the Brazilian-born bathing suit model he's been dating since March.

Núñez's former spokesman Steve Maviglio said the engaged couple have not yet set a wedding date. Núñez and his wife, Maria Robles, filed for divorce last year, Maviglio said.

Núñez, a Democrat from Los Angeles, was elected three times to the State Assembly before leaving office in late 2008. That year, Núñez's family life was upended after his son, Esteban Núñez, was accused and later convicted in the stabbing death of a San Diego student. In a controversial move, former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger shortened the sentence of his political ally's son in 2011.

Núñez is now a partner with the lobbying firm Mercury Public Affairs.
