Latino Group Calls on Republicans to Denounce Hateful Rhetoric against Sotomayor

In a statement released today, Presente Action called on Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee today to denounce Rush Limbaugh's newest inflammatory attacks on Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

They had this to say:

"Rush Limbaugh has no shame -- launching more racist attacks on Judge Sotomayor during a historic week when her credentials are on full display and our community is beaming with pride. Our elected leaders cannot remain silent in the face of these inflammatory comments polluting the public discourse. We demand that Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee denounce Limbaugh's latest remarks immediately."

On Monday, Presente Action released a video ad in local congressional districts asking people to call on Representative John Mica (R-FL) to denounce racist attacks on Sotomayor by Limbaugh.

According to the organization's press release, since Monday’s launch, the ad has been featured on ABC, Politico, CNN, Huffington Post, Orlando Sentinel, St. Petersburg Times, South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Daily Kos, and others including The O'Reilly Factor.

“They are trying to use the Sotomayor nomination to make a broader indictment against the Obama administration that they’ve been trying to make this summer, which is that the administration is further to the left, is more liberal than they pretend to be, and I think the Sotomayor nomination is being cast in that context.” -

I think this article just supports that opinion. It seems pretty evident this is a battle not about Sotomayor to the Republicans but about the broader stances of the administration.
