California Democrat Stumping for Illegal Alien Votes


Remember this Democratic recruitment flier that was distributed at a Dallas illegal alien protest in April?

A California Democrat, Francine Busby, must have taken this flier to heart because she asked her Spanish-speaking audience for help in November, saying, “you don’t need papers for voting.” Expose the Left has the audio.

So, here we have a California Democrat running for office who is caught on tape telling those in her audience who aren’t American citizens to commit voter fraud. This is not a shocking revelation. The Democrats made their goals clear with the flier, and Ms. Busby acted on them.

Update: Ms. Busby now says she misspoke.

Her opponent, former Rep. Brian Bilbray’s reaction:

Bilbray said at worst, Busby was encouraging someone to vote illegally. At best, she was encouraging someone who is illegally in the country to work on her campaign.

“She’s soliciting illegal aliens to campaign for her and it’s on tape – this isn’t exactly what you call the pinnacle of ethical campaign strategy,” Bilbray said. “I don’t know how she shows her face.”

Update II: Blue Crab Boulevard‘s comments are right on:

Although Busby is backpedaling furiously, the words are what they are. Misstatement or not, she may have ended up galvanizing her opposition. You can bet that there will be additional scrutiny over who is voting as well. Bilbrays campaign has focused on controlling illegal immigration, Busby just handed him a club.
