"Latinos" Angeles


Pic: Antonio Villaraigosa

James Hahn, the current mayor of Los Angeles, was defeated in the Tuesday election race against a hispanic high school drop out.

Antonio Villaraigosa, a hispanic high school drop out who turned his life around, was elected mayor of L.A., the second biggest city in the U.S. He is the first hispanic mayor in 133 years.

In his victory speech yesterday, Villaraigosa proclaimed that "our purpose is to bring this great city together."

Villaraigosa will be sworn in July 1, making him the first hispanic mayor in L.A. since 1872. Hahn is the first L.A. mayor to be dethroned in 32 years.

Isn't that new mayor a member of Mecha, a racist orginization geared towards "Reconquista", or the reestablishing former Mexican Territory was their own? That's what I heard.

That I have not heard, but I've also heard that he once had a tattoo that said "Born To Raise Hell."
