Questions immigration status of brother of AZ legislator
Jeff Flake supporter Shawnna L. M. Bolick took to Twitter today to challenge the immigration status of conservative U.S. Senate candidate Wil Cardon‘s driver.
@Cardon2012 company’s hiring draws scrutiny. I wonder if his personal driver is legal? (Only confirmed followers have access to @slmbolick’s Tweets and complete profile.)
Here is Team Cardon’s response on Facebook:
As a candidate for the U.S. Senate, Wil Cardon has gotten used to personal attacks directed at him. But when the Flake campaign uses social media to spread racist accusations against a Cardon staffer, that’s well beyond the line.
Beq Montenegro is not merely a valuable part of our campaign – he’s a proud American citizen of Central American descent and the brother of an Arizona state representative. To use the color of Beq’s skin to suggest that he’s in the U.S. illegally is irresponsible and without a doubt, racist.
We couldn’t be more disappointed in the judgment of Jeff Flake’s team and the ethics of his supporters. They owe Beq an apology.
