His name is Robert de Posada, and he is a Republican. He is also the President of a group calling themselves “Latinos for Reform” who, judging from their new ad campaign, are either idiots or morally bankrupt.
The following ad was scheduled to begin running on Univision in Nevada, Florida, and other Latino-rich states. Univision–who had run the radio version on some of its Nevada stations and who had already accepted an $80,000 ad buy in to begin running the ad on their television network–has now said they will not air the ad. Telemundo has also agreed not to show it.
For those who don’t speak Spanish, the ad is telling Latinos not to vote in order to send a message to politicians–Democratic politicians who haven’t followed through with their promises to reform immigration.
The idiot de Posada claims he is sincere, and is all just an “effort to express Hispanic frustration with the Democrats failure to deliver on immigration reform.” The President and other Democrats think it is a ploy to elect more Republicans.
This is one of the dirtiest and most demeaning political tricks I have seen in a long time.
Here is the English version.
