BBC AudioTape Emerges With Damaging Remarks.

Respected political reporter Heath Haussamen has posted a report by Bill Dupuy, a radio reporter for KSFR-FM in Santa Fe. Dupuy obtained audio of an interview C. de Baca conducted with BBC reporter Ros Atkins.

Listen to it here:

Here’s what C. de Baca told Atkins:
I feel strongly that Hispanics will not support, in my generation and the generation around my age, are not going to support the Democratic candidate for president primarily because there is a strong feeling that African Americans during the civil rights movement took advantage, full advantage, of all the benefits and programs that the government offered, that were supposed to be offered to all minorities. But we were left behind, we were left sucking air, and we resented that ever since the 60s, and I don’t see how a black president is going to change that.

C. de Baca is under pressure to resign after an interview with another BBC reporter, Jon Kelly. In an article called, Latin Class, C. de Baca said, "Hispanics are above blacks. Hispanics will never vote for a black man."

Presently, C. de Baca is in a meeting with his county party’s executive board at Ladera Golf Course to determine his future with the County Republican Party.
