On illegal immigration, Whitman plays the same game

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

In my column in The Star today, I wrote that Republican gubernatorial candidate Steve Poizner had opened his television advertising campaign with a focus on illegal immigration, and how the camp of opponent Meg Whitman derided that decision in comments to the Spanish-language media.

The column cited a statement that Whitman aide Hector Barajas gave to Univision over the weekend, and repeated to me in a telephone call on Tuesday: "To introduce himself in this way, by trying to divide and attack our community, marks the end of the Poizner campaign."

In response, the Poizner camp sent me the flyer below that was passed out by the Whitman campaign at the fall GOP convention. It does make one wonder why Barajas doesn't consider this to be an attempt "to divide and attack our community."

It would be interesting to hear Whitman's response. If only she answered questions.
