We’ll take your huddled masses, but get a job first

Republican presidential hopeful John McCain says the focus on illegal immigration during the Republican primary season harmed his party’s image among Hispanics.

Speaking to reporters in Phoenix on Cinco de Mayo, McCain said that Hispanic citizens want America’s borders secured and illegal immigrants to be treated humanely.

He says low-income Hispanic citizens are vulnerable to losing their jobs to the lower wages accepted by illegal immigrants.

Who watches the watchdog?

I can’t help but wonder what the atmosphere is like in the office of Attorney General Marc Dann now that the interrogation lights have been switched on there and directed toward him.

He has admitted to a romantic relationship with a female staffer, two ranking employees in his office have lost their jobs recently in connection with sexual harassment allegations and more investigations are being considered ranging from more sexual complaints to credit card and state vehicle uses. It reads like a movie synopsis and it doesn’t get any prettier.
