Now, Romney's director of Hispanic outreach 'shocked' by 'gifts' comments!

Washington, Mon, 19 Nov 2012 ANI

Washington, Nov. 19 (ANI): An adviser to Mitt Romney's campaign Carlos Gutierrez has expressed outrage over the presidential candidate's comments that President Barack Obama won his re-election bid by bribing minorities with gifts.

"I was shocked. And frankly I don't think that's why Republicans lost the election," Carlos Gutierrez, Romney's director of Hispanic outreach, said during an appearance on CNN's 'State of the Union'.

"I think we lost the election because the far right of this party has taken the party to a place that it doesn't belong," he said.

According to the Huffington Post, Romney's remarks, made last week in a post-election conference call with donors, sparked Democratic outrage, with even top Republicans repudiating him.

Second-term Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, the first Indian-American to be elected governor, at the Republican Governors Association annual meeting in Las Vegas said that he "absolutely reject[s] that notion, that description."

Now, Gutierrez, a former businessman and director of Romney's Hispanic outreach, is piling on.

"I don't know if he understood that he was saying something that was insulting," Gutierrez said, adding: "The language, the attitude, the body language, that's what Latinos watch." (ANI)
