Latinos Believe Arizona Republican Secretary of State Ken Bennett Interfering With Latino Rights To Vote
Phoenix, AZ - The National Tequila Party believes the Arizona Republican Secretary of State — Ken Bennett is interfering with our right to vote under the Voter Rights Act of 1965. Latinos believe this may be an attempt by Republican leaders to quash Latino voters who will more than likely vote for President Obama in our key swing State of Arizona due to the anti-immigrant rhetoric and sentiment produced by ousted and former Republican Senator Russell Pearce and the Republican Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Bennett told a radio interviewer yesterday it was “possible” he would keep Obama off the ballot if the issue isn’t resolved.
Currently there are about 500,000 registered Latino voters in Arizona; 47% are registered as Democrats, 15% as Republicans and 37% as independents. More and more Latino Get Out the Vote efforts are underway in our State of Arizona and across our Nation, and we will begin raising money in preparation of litigation if our right to vote is interfered with by the Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett in the upcoming November 2012 Presidential elections. Ken Bennett’s move is reminiscent to what they do in communist countries like Cuba. The long form of Obama’s birth certificate has already been shown. Furthermore, in order to run for the President of the United States of America, presidential candidates go through tremendous screening, scrutiny and vetting.
About the National Tequila Party Movement:
The National Tequila Party Movement is a female-led political movement. More females vote in Presidential elections than men strong Latina matriarchs are emerging. It is our goal to communicate to females and Latina matriarchs across the nation with regard to the need for compassion towards undocumented immigrants and the need to fix the broken immigration system. The Tequila Party is currently organizing a national tour of concerts, events, dinners and college rallies that will encourage a massive Latino Get Out The Vote and political participation. This movement is a non-partisan movement. We don’t care how people vote, we just want them to get on the early ballot system, become consistent primary and general election voters.
