Skip to comments.The GOP's Former Head of Hispanic Outreach in Florida Becomes a Democrat
Posted on 05/14/2013 12:38:08 PM PDT by lowbridge
The former head of the RNC's Hispanic outreach committee in Florida is so fed up with the national party's stance on immigration that he's switching teams and registering as a Democrat. The final straw for Pablo Pantoja, who worked for the RNC in the 2010 and 2012 elections before quitting last summer, was apparently the new, flawed Heritage Foundation study on the cost of immigration, co-authored by Jason Richwine who previously wrote that "No one knows whether Hispanics will ever reach IQ parity with whites."
The Tampa Bay Times and the Miami Herald picked up on the Monday email from Pantoja, which is being circulated by the state's wing of the Democratic party (of course). It was originally posted to the blog of a friend of Pantoja, who notes that the new Democrat is also a National Guardsman who served in Iraq and Kuwait.

Pablo was always a democrat.
Taking out the trash. We need more spring cleaning. I guess he couldn’t stay in character any longer.
Just another “mole” going home where he belongs. Good news for the GOP. Hopefully, they will be able to identify all of the ‘RAT “moles” running the party and run them all off. It’s a shame that so many ‘RATS were allowed to infiltrate and infest the GOP in the first place.
Wouldn’t be surprised.
Imagine, Rubio jumps parties and then runs a “Moderate Democrap” in the wake of Barry Delf Destructing.....
The Governs to the left of center and by the end of his second term is almost where Barry was half way through hist first term...
Don Rubio will follow the money, like any good lawyer.
We need to start pushing the RINOs tot he democrat party, it will do two things...
1. Clear up the primaries a bit to where we will have more of a chance running a conservative.
2. Send a message that RINOs are not allowed anymore.
I say keep digging, Carney!!! The truth will bury you in that hole!
I think Rubio will flip.
Which just goes to show he was a liberal or worse, all along.
As Churchill said: A rare example of a rat running toward a sinking ship...
Quit or be fired? Pissed off over his boss. Sounds like a disgruntled employee as few within the party give a damn over what the Heritage Foundation says.
When's the book coming out by this hack?
This man’s change in party affilation supports what voting statistics show — race and ethnicity matters. This man is choosing his affilating based in feelings of racial solidarity rather than a logical assessment of the issues. The Balkanization of America continues.
Also note that like all critics of Richwine’s statistically based IQ argument, this man fails to present any statistics that prove Richwine wrong. That’s because those statistics do not exist. Why get to the merits of a message, though, when you can simply dismiss the messenger as racist? It’s the new Ameican way.
If he does Morgan & Morgan, the ambulance chasers of Orlando, can hire him and give him a desk next to Crist. He’ll have to bring his own tanning booth or insta-pray orange tan./s
rubio to follow.
This is so stupid, we don’t need a Hispanic/Latino outreach. We need to get this party back to conservatism and preach a message that ALL Americans can resonate with.
The GOP should seriously consider doing some outreach to Caucasion taxpayers.
Don’t let la puerta hit you on your culo
Tribe before country, eh Pablo!
Well he, and all too many others, have proven where their true loyalties lie.
Allowing criminal trespassers to become citizens is more important to Hispanics than the country. Seems to me that they are traitors to the USA.
What a shame, good hard working people who only have 2 major flaws.
1) Complete disregard for our borders.
2) Failure to assimilate by learning the language.
oh snap....I am so shocked....stealth RINOs are everywhere
I suspect he was a plant all along
One less Hispanic Racist in the GOP
Wonder if this guy has any problem with a main Amnesty sponsor....who supports the takeover of the US Southwest by Mestizos...and calls itself “The Race”?
