An Oregon politician has confessed to penning a racist letter to himself after he initially claimed it was anonymously sent to him, authorities said.
Jonathan Lopez, who is Latino and was a recent candidate for Umatilla County commissioner, claimed he discovered the hate-filled missive in his mailbox on June 23, the East Oregonian reported.
On his now-deleted Facebook account, he shared a photo of the letter, which said that Lopez and other Mexicans were not welcome here, according to local news station KEPR-TV.
Dont waste your time trying to become anything in this county we will make sure you never win and your family suffers along with all the other fking Mexicans in the area! the letter said.
Lopez wrote in the post that he holds no resentment for whomever wrote this, the outlet reported.
Im just simply heartbroken for the lack of knowledge, education and respect missing, he said. I pray for you and wish you prosperity in your life.
But when authorities followed up with Lopez about the alleged incident, he confessed to writing the letter himself.
Our investigation has shown that Mr. Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media, Hermiston Police Chief Jason Edmiston told the East Oregonian.

Question — what does it say, about these allegedly persecuted members of groups, who continually perpetrate these hoaxes, which supposedly show how bigoted our country is? Why do they feel the need to perpetrate such actions?
What does it say about the allegedly bigoted conservatives, that such alleged bigots are NOT perpetrating these acts?
HE BETTER BE ARRESTED!!
He should be charged with a hate crime (against himself).
10 years in state pen, loss of all government benefits, anything less is not equal justice for all.

Prosecute this dope for a hate crime!
Is the letter racist? If yes, did this dope write it? If yes thats a hate crime, and he did it! Put this dope in jail!
First off Latino is not a race, neither is Mexican neither is Hispanic.
A rational person would wonder why, if America is so bigoted and racist, do these people find it necessary to perpetuate these hoaxes repeatedly.
Being a victim is so cool and fun! I want to be a victim. Hey everybody, look at me..
Should have gone with the noose option. Noose will always get you more votes than hate letter
Say it ain’t so......... /facepalm
And invoked the LORD for prayer -— wow! Not a good thing to lie about.
Notice that every headline regarding this story reads that he is politician only and not his party affiliation.
What did he do... lick the stamp himself? What an idiot...
“Lopez who lost a primary election for a seat on the Umatilla County Board of Commissioners in May claimed he never intended to file a police report about the bogus letter.
I never meant to file a report, it just kind of spiraled out, Lopez told the newspaper.”
Well, since he never “intended” to file a false police report, it’s OK, right?/sarc
