This is a low down, sleazy trick in keeping with the Republican's history of sleaze. But this one iseven worse.
I recieved one of those letters and they said they had identified me as a Republican leader, etc. As a life long Democrate, I took that as an insult. Remember these tactics when it is time to vote. Hispanics should vote in the numbers that will guarantee their civil rights in the future. If they voted to kick the bigots out of office, we would get a bill that would clear up the status of thousands of Hispanics living in fear in the USA.

I am going to vote to get the bigots out. That's why i'm voting Republican.
I do like how the demo's do things though. Like when I get a phone call stating they are doing a poll, first thing they ask is "are you a democrat?" when I answer no they say thank you and hang up.

Dems are just angry they didn't think of it! It was printed in several places that it wasn't from the Census Bureau!

Hispanics already have the right to vote if they are here legally.
They just chose, like a lot of other people, not to vote unless they think the person with the best lies on his lips can give them what they want.

I'm Hispanic and I do not live in fear, except for being afraid of the large women who come into my store and expect for my lingerie to make them look like Salma Hayek. I have the highest quality product but I'm not a miracle worker.

Another word "white" people aren't allowed to use.
Only Democrats, gansta rappers and illegal aliens can use the "C" word.

This is just the Republicans assuming that their constituents are idiots. Unfortunately they are often correct about that. That is how they get their flock to vote against their own best interests.

You use every chance you can to mention your lingerie! This column was about the RNC attempt to use a mock census form to raise money. You are a moron!

For once I agree with something that idiot Reyes says. That particular census-themed GOP mailout was incredibly deceptive and just plain wrong. I shredded it without sending a contribution or even filling it out. The nerve of them. Not that I was going to contribute anyway because they would just spend the money on booze and sex clubs.

He didn't just write about lingerie. He was addressing the idea that all Hispanics live in fear of the law. He clearly stated that his only fear was of fat women coming into his store.

Amazing how Reyes calls it dirty. Many here call it sleazy, ask the sleaze bag Reyes why he is a puppet of Peloski. Reyes' ability to think outside of the box is non-existent, he will only follow the party line! Check what Reyes does with his campaign contributions and then call all of us Republicans sleazy. Those that live in a glass house shouldn't throw rocks. Bottom line is that neither party is squeaky clean, but only in El Paso will people continue to pull the donkey lever for straight party ticket voting. We wonder why have losers such as Reyes as a representative. Continue tovote for the same idiots down town and wonder why you have such high property taxes, again straight party ticket voting.

Had our illustrious Congressman bothered to read the mailer like he read the healthcare bill(Doh!), he would have found many a disclaimer. Interesting that he hasn't commented on the handbill used by State Rep. Norma Chavez that used the County of El Paso's signet seal in a thinly veiled attempt to imply tacit approval of same. Oh that's right, he openly backed a loser. Hi-yo Silver, away!

At least he isn't a Palin for president Republican. As for our higher property taxes, you can lay a lot of the balme on the idiot we have for governor. He has never met a corporation he would not give a tax break.
