GOP Bigot Eruption: New Mexico's Fernando C. de Baca

Another Republican tells us how he really feels.

Embattled Bernalillo County Republican Party Chairman Fernando C. de Baca has officially resigned.

The state Republican Party officially reported the resignation in a news release just after 3 p.m. Thursday.

Last weekend, C. de Baca was quoted in a BBC News blog as saying, "The truth is that Hispanics came here as conquerors. African-Americans came here as slaves. ... Hispanics consider themselves above blacks. They won't vote for a black president."

At the rate they're going, hispanic Americans are going to look at hispanic Republicans the way blacks look at black Republicans/conservatives: A little sad and a lot amused.
