"I Might Have Tacos"

Posted by Goldy on Wed, Jan 25, 2012 at 1:44 PM

East Haven Connecticut Mayor Joe Maturo is under fire after four of his police officers were arrested, accused of illegally targeting Latinos with unlawful traffic stops, searches and seizures, and even physical abuse. So how does the mayor respond to a TV reporter's question about what he plans to do for the Latino community?

"I might have tacos when I go home, I'm not quite sure yet," Maturo told WPIX reporter Mario Diaz.

Ten percent of East Haven's population is Latino, 100 percent of whom will likely support Maturo's opponent in the next election.
