Immigrants Told They Can't Vote; GOP Candidate Told He Can't Run


An Orange County Republican's congressional campaign went into meltdown Thursday after he said a staff member was responsible for sending thousands of letters to new voters with Latino surnames telling them—wrongly—that it is illegal for them to vote if they are immigrants.

The Orange County Republican Party immediately called for Tan Nguyen, the GOP candidate for California's 47th district, to withdraw from the race after it concluded he approved the mailing.

Full story. Nguyen, himself a Vietnamese boat exodus immigrant, who ran as a Democrat against Dana Rohrabacher in the last election, is still denying responsibility, saying he fired the aide who is to blame, and insists he's in the race to stay. He's up against Dem incumbent Loretta Sanchez.
