When it comes to racist intent, GOP State Rep. Cecilia Buck-Taylor makes the case for Gov. Malloy

UPDATE: The Connecticut Democratic Party released the following statement regarding State Rep. Buck-taylor's offensive remarks.

The Connecticut Democratic Party is calling on State Rep. Cecilia Buck-Taylor to apologize after she used a sponsored Facebook post last night to misrepresent and spread fear about Governor Malloy's Second Chance Society initiative.

Rep. Buck-Taylor's post is the latest in a string of attacks against the legislation intended to stir up fear. In March, she put out a press release outlining her opposition, in which she implied her support of Connecticut's current "three strikes" and mandatory minimum laws, which disproportionately impact people and communities of color.

"This is a deplorable attempt to blatantly misrepresent the impacts of legislation which will make our communities safer. It's time for Representative Buck Taylor to stop distorting the truth and apologize for her offensive comment." - Leigh Appleby, Connecticut Democratic Party spokesman.

Also, who paid to sponsor Rep. Buck-Taylor's Facebook post? Was it a blatant political attack paid for at taxpayer expense?


"To treat those folks differently because they live in those communities is patently unfair and if not racist in intent, is racist in its outcome...”

*Gov Malloy on opposition to the elmination of drug-free zones that resulted in the mass incarceration of people who reside in urban communities.

By now, you've read of heard about the latest round of phony outrage from the Michelle Bachman of Connecticut House Minority Leader Themis Klardies regarding remarks from Gov. Dan Malloy in which he CORRECTLY decribed those who support our state's drug-free zone policy as "if not racist in intent, is racist in its outcome."

Well, at least when it comes to streotypical racist rhetoric from the state GOP, yesterday in a sponsored post on Facebook, New Milford State Rep. Cecilia Buck-Taylor pretty much made the case for the governor.

I guess when it come to inciteful rhetoric from within the State GOP, State Sen. Mike McLachlan has some real competition!

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
