Republican 527 group urges Nevada Latinos not to vote | Raw Story

"by not voting, Nevada Latinos would be helping to elect tea party favorite Sharron Angle, whose positions on immigration and the Latino community in general seem out of touch at best."

"the groupís 8872 form lists the same P.O. Box number as the one belonging to the Admiral Roy F. Hoffmann Foundation, an organization founded by the chairman of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth (SBVT), Roy F. Hoffmann. For those who donít recall, SBVT was another 527 group formed during the 2004 elections aimed at opposing Sen. John Kerryís (D-MA) presidential bid by distorting and misrepresenting his war record."
