Raul Grijalva is my US Representative. He is a Tucson-native, served on the Pima County Board of Supervisors, and is an honorable man. He has been unpopular among many people for pushing for a boycott of the state after Governor Brewer signed the unconstitutional SB 1070 legislation. After portions of the law were declared unconstitutional, he rescinded his call for a boycott.

Raul Grijalva.

Not surprisingly, for a Native of southern Arizona, he has Mexican ancestry.

Ruth McClung is the Republican running against Mr. Grijalva. Below is the piece of campaign literature I received from the Arizona Republican Party, which sent it out on McClung's behalf.

In case you didn't notice, the Arizona Republican Party photo-shopped Mr. Grijalva's moustache to look like the racist, stereotypical depictions of Mexicans that used to common back before people started to think that maybe that wasn't such a cool thing to do. Example below:

I am surprised that the Arizona Republican Party didn't photo-shop a sombrero onto Mr. Grijalva's head.

I also received campaign material from Mr. Grijalva. No photo-shopped images of Ruth McClung.

I sent her an email telling her she should be ashamed of herself.
