Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez gives twice as much to Viet charities, compared to others

Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez is seeing double when it comes to her Vietnamese constituents

Even when Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez donates to charities, she can’t stop pandering to Vietnamese voters.

Sanchez announced this year that in lieu of mailing out Christmas cards, she was going to produce a virtual card and post it online.  The money she saved on printing cards would be donated to a number of local charities.  Very nice.

But inexplicably, Sanchez gave $2,000 to each the Vietnamese Community of Orange County Inc. and the Orange County Asian and Pacific Islander Community Alliance, while giving only $1,000 each to other charities, including a few that serve Latinos.

The figures were reported by the O.C. Register.  They failed to catch the obvious – Sanchez once again is favoring her Vietnamese constituents over her Latino constituents.  What is up with that?

This should come as no surprise given that Sanchez not only doesn’t miss the Tet Festival every year, she shows up in traditional Vietnamese clothing!  But she hasn’t been in Santa Ana’s Fiestas Patrias Parade for at least a couple of years.  And while somd of her supporters claim to have seen her wearing traditional Mexican garb, no pictures of this can be found online. 

The charities that got half as much as the Vietnamese charities included: Acacia Adult Day Services, Assistance League of Santa Ana, Children’s Bureau of Southern California, Christian Latino Association of Music and Arts, Community Senior, Eddie Nash Foundation, El Puente Community Development Corporation, El Sol Science and Arts Academy, Eli Home Inc., Girl Scout Council of Orange County, Healthy Smiles for Kids of Orange County, HEEFs De la Libertad Scholarship Fund, Hurtt Family Health Clinic, Mercy House Living Centers, Moms Orange County, Orange County Community Housing Corporation, Orange County Rescue Mission, Orangewood Childrens Foundation, Providence Speech and Hearing Center, Shati Orange County, Straight Talk Inc., Taller San Jose, Alzheimers Family Services Center, Crittenton Services for Children and Family, Project Hope Foundation, Santa Ana LULAC Council,#147, and Thomas House Temporary Shelter.

Thanks Congresswoman Sanchez for being so charitable, but please explain why you are so obviously pandering, once more, to your Vietnamese constituents…
