Lionel Sosa and MATT.org

Lionel Sosa is an extremely ethnocentric GOP advertising consultant affiliated with MATT.org and other groups. MATT stands for "Mexicans and Americans Thinking Together".

Sosa worked on presidential campaigns by George W Bush and others. In 2007, he crossed over and supported Bill Richardson because, as he said at the time, "Blood runs thicker than politics".

When the Richardson thing didn't work out, he switched to working for John McCain.

Not only that, but in January 2008, he hoped that the Mexican government would help fund a pro-amnesty ad campaign he had planned.
