Hit Pieces on Bustamante Start
For those that jumped on my rather gentle analysis of the problems with Arianna running, how about taking on this racist attack on Bustamante from the Right.
This "MEChA=Mexican Secessionist Treason" meme kicks around the California Right on a continual basis. It was used to tar Antonio Villaraigosa during the 2001 LA mayor's race.
It's also a reminder of how tied Bustamante is to the latino grassroots, from his work in MEChA when he was younger to his rise to Speaker of the Assembly to his present position as Lieutenant Governor.
