RNC Director of Florida Hispanic Outreach Defects to Democratic Party

Last April the enigmatic Rience Priebus, as outside of character as he could be, said the following. Priebus' comments were spoken as part of an RNC plan to target six states for focused Latino out reach. 
"We are going to engage Hispanics and Latinos like we've never done before," RNC chairman Reince Priebus said on a conference call.
According to Tampabay Dot Com, The Buzz....
He promised a "very detailed, concerted, technical effort," and stressed it would be based on the economy. "Latinos have been bearing the brunt of the Obama economy," he said, referring to higher unemployment than the non-Hispanic white population. (we looked at the issue in Florida recently. Story here.)

One year later Pablo Pantoja comments.

RNC Hispanic Outreach Operative Becomes a Democrat

Pablo Pantoja, who was most recently the State Director of Florida Hispanic Outreach for the Republican National Committee, changed his voter registration to become a Democrat, according to Florida Nation.
"It doesn't take much to see the culture of intolerance surrounding the Republican Party today. I have wondered before about the seemingly harsh undertones about immigrants and others. Look no further; a well-known organization recently confirms the intolerance of that which seems different or strange to them."
The GOP and RNC can practice lip-service and  clumsily attempt to quickly turn-around decades of insensitivity to minorities; they will fail with each initiative.  While the umbrella GOP and RNC speak about "autopsies' and re-branding, their members (92% white)  are members for a reason. They have no need for, nor interest in developing a more diverse populace within their party. 

We suggest a major lobotomy is the only real opportunity to affect change in the party on the Right.
