CO Springs Gazette rescinds endorsement of Chris Romer in-state tuition for illegal aliens ("the politics of sleaze")
The Colorado Springs Gazette has rescinded their endorsement of state Sen. Chris Romer's bill that would give in-state tuition to illegal aliens: link. The reason is because he and some of his colleagues took advantage of the absence of another colleague who had to take his ill father to a nursing home. That colleague was going to vote against the bill, but the others scheduled a 7am vote in order to sneak it through. The paper urges legislators to vote against it and says that those who took advantage of the situation "engaged in the politics of sleaze".
That isn't the same thing as the Gazette rescinding the endorsement because of the fact that the bill would allow illegal aliens to take college educations from U.S. citizens, but it is significant. And, it illustrates the level that those who support illegal immigration will stoop to in order to obtain race-based power.
