In case you’ve yet to see this, it’s a doozy: East Haven, Conn. Mayor Joe Maturo’s plans to help the Latino community, struggling with a controversy regarding rogue police officers detaining Latinos seemingly without reason? ”I might have tacos when I go home,” he told a TV news reporter. “I’m not quite sure yet.” Maturo later apologized for the comments in a statement, claiming ”I let the stress of the situation get the best of me and inflamed what is already a serious and unfortunate situation. I regret my insensitive comment and realize that it is my job to lead by example.” But let’s face it, there’s no getting out of this one.
Good God. I love when politicians say something unsavory and then accuse the press of manipulating their intent. Tacos? REALLY?
