Don't trust that 'Latino Voter Guide'
WRITTEN BY :   Eric Pierce

Just when you thought politics couldn’t get any slimier…

Something called the “California Latino Voter Guide” landed in mailboxes this week. It urges recipients to vote for the candidates and ballot measures listed inside without justification. All it says is “vote for them, vote por ellos.”

It’s not until you read the fine print that you find out candidates paid to be listed in the guide. What a cheap trick.

It’s deceitful that this mailer is trying to trick unsuspecting voters and insulting in its insinuation that Latino voters aren’t smart enough to do their research. My vote is going to the best candidate, whether they have a Latino surname or not.

I can’t wait ’til this election is over.
