Pa. Governor: No, We Have No Latinos
Pennsylvania’s Republican Governor Tom Corbett seems unusually proud that his Administration has no Latinos in it:
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett is taking some heat for comments he made last week about his lack of Latino staffers.
Corbett, asked at a Philadelphia forum hosted by the Spanish-language newspaper ALDIA News Media if he had any Latinos serving in his administration, responded that he did not.
“No, we do not have any staff members in there,” he said. “If you can find us one, please let us know.”
When the moderator responded saying she was “sure” there were Latinos in the administration or who would want to work there, Corbett replied, “Do any of you you want to come to Harrisburg? See?”
Corbett is already in serious re-election trouble. This is unlikely to help.
