Democrat State Rep: “You’re carrying the water for the Mexican on the fourth floor”

16 Dec


A Democrat legislator in New Mexico, House Majority Whip Sheryl Williams Stapleton, allegedly refers to GOP Governor Susana Martinez as:

“the Mexican on the fourth floor”

In her defense, she:

acknowledged confronting Espinoza on the integrity issue, then making the remark about the governor, but she said she did not mean it in a derogatory way or as an ethnic slur.

Oh, good!  Whew!  I’m sure glad to hear that she didn’t mean it in a derogatory way or as an ethnic slur.

Can you imagine if a Republican had said this?  This would be breaking news on every single Democrat Media channel and front page news on all the Democrat newspapers (NY Times, LA Times, Boston Globe, etc.).  They would make sure that everyone, particularly Latinos, knew that a Republican referred to a sitting female governor as “the Mexican on the fourth floor.”  We would hear pundit after pundit asking what this means for Republicans going into the elections next year.  Will this further alienate Latinos from Republicans?  Will this send the Latinos running to Obama and the Democrats?

But since it was a Democrat who said it, you probably won’t ever hear about it other than reading this.
