And it's not in the south, but the sub-burbs of Los Angeles

Here's the You Tube video from a Tea Party type protest against immigration. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qE_KDpz2M30

He used to be mayor of Santa Clarita, and he's getting a lot of support here.

And in today's local paper. he will be offering NO apology. even though other republicans are distancing themselves from him because of his statements.

Quote:
At least two prominent Republicans have distanced themselves from Santa Clarita City Councilman Bob Kellar since he used fiery rhetoric to decry amnesty for illegal immigrants at a rally last month, with one even calling on him for an apology.

But Kellar said this week that's out of the question.

"I am going to continue to be very clear: There will be no apologies coming from Bob Kellar," Kellar said. "As my parents taught me, you don't apologize unless you've done something wrong."

I keep reading this, but have nothing to say that doesn't involve namecalling.... I have come back like 6 times today, and keep getting to the same thing.

I was getting really self conscious that my post had so many views and no responses. I'm so glad you cleared that up. Yeah, I have nothing to say about the incident. Just the facts. A friend of mine has had a letter to the editor about this approved, just waiting for it to print. When it does I'll link her commentary.
