Sen. Pat Leahy lies about Sonia Sotomayor "wise Latina" statement
"You said that, quote, you 'would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would reach wise decisions'".
Leahy is lying and doing so outrageously. Here's the accurate version of Sotomayor's famous comment:
"I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life".
Did he realize how outrageous her statement was and then decide to bowdlerize it on the spot, or was that pre-planned?
