California Representative Loretta Sanchez is facing a serious challenge from Republican Van Tran in the upcoming congressional election. So she went on Univision and said in Spanish that the Vietnamese are trying to take away her seat:
Imagine if a Republican would have said something like this. It would lead national news for days.
Sanchez was clearly hoping she could get away with this because she said it on Spanish television. Fortunately, with internet-based media, politicians can no longer control who hears what they say.
