Tan D. Nguyen denied knowing anything about the letter in an interview Thursday with The Associated Press but said he fired a campaign staffer who may have been responsible for it. Nguyen's attorney said his client had no intention of quitting.

State and federal officials were investigating the letter, which was written in Spanish and mailed to an estimated 14,000 Democratic voters in central Orange County. It warns, "You are advised that if your residence in this country is illegal or you are an immigrant, voting in a federal election is a crime that could result in jail time."

It's only if you're an 'illegal' immigrant that you can't vote. If this is the correct wording then it is an underhanded move.

The GOP trying to throw one of its own under the bus? The only thing holding back the Republican Party is its weak leadership.

Supressing the vote is on the same level as "get out the vote". I think there is more fraud in the "get out the vote" campaigns. Registering dead people, inmates, felons, illegals, mentally retarded, paying people to register, and paying people to vote all happen in "get out the vote. So supressing the vote is a good counter measure to this.

If that's all the letter said, then what's the big deal. Was the statement untruthful? Did it do anything to attempt to prevent citizens from voting?

or you are an immigrant, voting in a federal election is a crime that could result in jail time."

This would be the operative phrase, if it's legit. You can be a legal immigrant and vote. Just not an illegal immigrant.
