What can being brown do for you if you are a member of the U.S. Congress? Nada.
U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R) is persona non grata in the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, even though the Miami-native is as Hispanic as Ricky Martin is “living la vida loca.”
The caucus has kept Curbelo out because he does not conform with there pro-Democratic Party leanings and ideology. Curbelo is as moderate a Republican as the get, but is not as brown as Democratic Hispanics would like.
Curbelo, who appears to still a little molestado (bothered in Espanol) called out caucus member Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (D-NM) for endorsing “segregation and bigotry by rejecting a non-Democrat’s application to join” the respective “Hispanic-only” caucus in the House.
The jab was in response to Rep. Lujan’s call for unity after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.
