Loretta Sanchez apologizes for mocking American Indians

As reported by the Sacramento Bee:

U.S. Senate candidate Loretta Sanchez, addressing Democratic activists Sunday, apologized for a gesture mocking American Indians, offering that candidates “who don’t hide behind the handlers” sometimes misstep.

Sanchez, a 10-term congresswoman, said the Native American “war cry,” made while speaking to an American Indian group in Anaheim on Saturday, came amid a “crazy and exciting rush of meetings.” In a video posted on social media, Sanchez holds her hand in front of her mouth and makes a whooping sound. “I said something offensive, and for that I sincerely apologize.”

Sanchez, D-Santa Ana, speaking at the California Democratic Party convention, said her free-flowing approach has long connected with voters.

  1. This is possibly one of the most ignorant women in politics and goes out of her way to prove me right…Toss her butt out and get a person of commonsense and intelligence in that office…someone who will vote to term limit no retirement for all elected and appointed government officials….

Speak Your Mind
