NOT Mr. Peck’s finest moment

March 28, 2011 § Leave a comment

Petitions bearing some 55,000 signatures were delivered to the Kansas Capitol calling for the resignation of a legislator who suggested that illegal immigrants be shot like wild hogs. People from several organizations brought signatures gathered online at Presente.org, a national Latino advocacy group that has condemned remarks made by Rep. Virgil Peck on March 14 at a House committee meeting. The committee was discussing whether to fund the use of helicopters to locate and shoot feral hogs, which farmers said harm crops. “Looks to me, if shooting these immigrating feral hogs works, maybe we have found a (solution) to our illegal immigration problem,” Peck said at the committee meeting. Peck’s remarks set off a nationwide uproar among Latino organizations. Peck later apologized in a prepared statement but said he did not plan to resign. (reuters)

Um, ok.
