So, the story is, Meg Whitman had this clown listed as one of her supporters, and when this video surfaced she had to reluctantly cut him loose. What’s hilarious, though, is his defense that he “was taken out of context” echoed in the comments by his defenders in the LA Times story. Following is three out of the four comments appearing when I checked (try to make it through the video first). When a man says “I’m a proud racist” can context possibly matter?
Of course she stepped back from him…she doesn’t have the ball$ to step up to the plate. If you listen to the comment in the correct context, he didn’t say anything wrong.

I can understand why a candidate wouldn’t want to get involved with the councilman’s linguistic ineptitude with which the media is having a field day. But it goes beyond this tangential and unimportant issue. Meg wants to reward illegal immigrants.

So Meg Whitman is calling a man a racist because he believe we need to solve the illegal immigration in america. Sounds like she is one doing the name calling… just like McCarthy go after people calling everyone a communist.
If she had listened to the comments, she would have know he wasn’t being racist… he sad we need to solve the illegal immigration problem in California.
They get lots of benefits, take jobs, and don’t pay taxes. It is not a race issue.
it is an illegal immigration problem. Meg, I am not impressed with your power of observation skills or your kicking him out of you campaign on bogie charges.
