Although the Register-Citizen did not endorse any candidate for Lt. Gov., the paper was really turned off with the last honest man’s racist anti-immigrant policies and weren’t sold on his line of B.S.
In looking at the Republican race, for example, Boughton is smart, knows his stuff, and would bring administrative prowess to the job. His record on immigration enforcement in Danbury and racial profiling, however, is so troubling that we could not in good conscience recommend him for this job. And he is inconsistent in his description of how illegal immigration even affects his city, on one hand saying that it is a drain on services, on the other bragging that Danbury has the lowest crime and unemployment in the state despite the presence of between 5,000 and 11,000 “illegals.”
…more proof that people aren’t buying Boughton’s
lies regarding his rationale behind his stance on the immigration.
