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.
OK, so you still don't remember Barbara Coe? Well, then follow me down below for a quick history lesson, and why I'm smiling tonight...

Ah, Barbara Coe! Yes, that Barbara Coe... Ya know, the one whose group is listed by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group. Yes, the one who didn't have a problem with Congressional Candidate Tan Nguyen sending out the now infamous "Immigrants Can't Vote" Letter under her organization's letterhead...
AND SHE'S GONE! Well, she's just out of the Minuteman organization. But still, it's so exhilarating to see OC's own Wicked Witch of the West cause havoc for her fellow Latino haters! I just hope that they all suffer in the chaos that they are creating for themselves, just as they've caused so much suffering for all the Latinos here in Orange County.
Gawd knows they deserve it. : )
