No mo’ Coe

Barbara Coe just resigned from the Minuteman Project. She was on the board and recently voted to give Jim Gilchrist the boot because of “financial and accountability issues” according to the Orange County Register.  Gilchrist took the group to court and filed a “it’s mine and you can’t have it” lawsuit.

You may remember Coe’s name from the Tan Nguyen scandal.  The fake letterhead that Nguyen used to write the infamous “immigrants can’t vote” letter on used the name “California Coalition for Immigration Reform” and Coe is the founder of that organization—but was not involved in the Nguyen letter.

The Minuteman organization has built their foundation on principles of hate and ignorance, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed watching it eat itself up from the inside out.

The Minute “men” act like they could patrol our borders, but they can’t even keep their own silly club in order.  I predict that 2007 will be the year that the Minuteman Project will crumble.  That should be good news for KKK recruiters.

    Ha! Nothing like seeing the anti-immigrant racist wingnuts fight each other… And destroy their own infrastructure in the process!

    I wouldn’t be so sure that Ms. Coe “was not involved in the Nguyen letter.”
    Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that she “has not been proven to be involved in the Nguyen letter. YET.”
