New Mexico Democrat Sends Racist Email Warning Fellow Democrats Not To Trust White Candidates

Heil Garcia
LOS LUNAS, N.M. (KRQE) – All Frank Otero wanted was a little help getting the word out about his campaign. After meeting with Rep. Miguel Garcia, D-Albuquerque, at a political event, Garcia reached out. 
“We talked on the phone he said he really wanted to help me and help my campaign,” Otero said. And Garcia stayed true to his word, sending an email addressed to “Fellow House Members, Senate Colleagues, Elected Official Friends” Monday night. 
That email enthusiastically backed Otero and fellow Valencia County Democrat Andrew Barreras in their bids in neighboring districts to unseat Republican Reps Kelly Fajardo and Alonzo Baldonado. 
But Garcia also lobbed race-based attacks against Otero and Barreras’ primary opponents, fellow Democrats Jim Danner and Teresa Smith de Cherif. 
Under a section titled “Treachery in Our Ranks Undermine Barreras and Otero”, Garcia wrote: 
“A minority of unsuspecting Democratic leaders are supporting the Democratic Anglo newcomer opponents in Andrew’s and Frank’s primary races. Anglo Democrats with egos as big as Texas, mouths as big as the Grand Canyon, and much “green” [moolah] from the East and the West Coast.” 
Garcia’s money reference appears to be more to Smith de Cherif, who has raised more than $10,000 of her campaign funds from out of state per finance records posted online.

Loretta Sanchez in California has been doing this for years. She even dissed her last opponent, a republican of Vietnamese ancestry, by saying he could not adequately represent a "Latino" district.
