Rep Don Young uses term "wetbacks" then apologizes. "I know that this term is not used in the same way nowadays and I meant no disrespect."—

Alaska Rep. Don Young is another corrupt, congressional bitter-clinger who needs to be sent back to Alaska. (No disrespect, natch.) The GOP congressman has held his office since 1973 and is under investigation yet again for ethical violations.
Evidently Young didn’t think grassroots conservatives had enough reason to pry his sticky fingers from his cushy seat in Congress, so he decided to toss out the racial slur “wetbacks” in a radio interview.
But, you know, he “meant no disrespect” with his unacceptable slur, so we’re all supposed to move on and forget this (and all his other idiocy) never happened.
I used a term that was commonly used during my days growing up on a farm in central California. I know that this term is not used in the same way nowadays and I meant no disrespect.
It’s long past time for this Beltway barnacle to be removed from Washington.
