RNC Latino Site Features Stock Photo of Asian Children

By ELIZABETH FLOCK

Mitt Romney has been increasingly keen to court the Latino vote, which is believed to heavily favor President Obama over the former Massachusetts governor for president. In the latest Latino Decisions poll, Obama held a 43-point lead over Romney.

But the Republican National Committee's Hispanic site may not be doing Romney any favors.

RNCLatinos.com features as its main image a stock photo from Shutterstock, which tags the photo with keywords that clearly suggest the kids are Asian, including: "asia," "asian," "interracial," "japanese," and "thailand."

We're guessing the RNC may have taken inspiration from Sharron Angle, who in 2010 told Hispanic children they looked Asian.

When the RNC launched the site in October, the committee described it as a place where the "Republican National Committee can connect with Hispanic voters, and Hispanic voters can hear Hispanic Republican leaders."

The Spanish-language site, which is linked to prominently from the main RNC site, on Thursday also featured a blog post on its homepage with the mangled title "How to cease locks the loss in ladies - suggested ways."

A request for comment from the RNC on the site's content was not immediately returned.

Update, 4:30 p.m.:

The photo of Asian children has been taken down and replaced with a banner that reads "Hispanic Latino Strategic Partnerships."

The hair loss blog post has also been replaced by an entrepreneurial reader, who writes: "So I guess just anyone can post something? Let's find out!"

Update, 4:53 p.m.

RNC spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski says: "An outside vendor developed the site and it has been corrected."

How do you know when Asians start moving into your neighborhood? The Mexicans all buy auto insurance.

Of course Romney's going about it wrong. He's looking for the legal Hispanic vote.
