The RINO Report is sad to announce that familiar GOP RINO Gabriela Saucedo Mercer is at it again. This time Mrs. Mercer decided to inappropriately appear at a funeral of a prominent South Tucson Family in order to gain political points. Mercer who was not invited and not welcomed by the family showed up late and attended the funeral hoping to gather pictures of her opponent Congressman Raul Grijalva taking Catholic communion. Gabby Mercer is a perma-candidate who simply seems to be around to nag, and spend the money that the people she calls “suckers” dontate. This time Gabriela Saucedo Mercer was comparing Raul Grijalva to Ryan Gosling and calling for is excommunication from the Catholic Church. We must point out the Gabriela Saucedo Mercer is not a Catholic herself.
We are sad to report this because Gabriela Saucedo Mercer is a candidate who constantly reminds us how dumb some people can be and continues to make the GOP look like nothing but radical right wing extremists. The worst part about her running for office year after year is that Gabriela Saucedo Mercer is just someone who uses campaign donations for her personal expenses, as we have reported here before on The Rino Report.
Now we will be fair, Raul Grijalva is what we here at The Rino Report consider the left of the leftists. He is the chairman of the Progressive Caucus and supports many bills and ideas which do go against the morals of the Catholic Faith. He has been a strong pro-choice advocate, but he is not a doctor and he is not the woman who is making the choice. So what was this about? Gabby trying to get some sort of thing going to hopefully raise another few thou$and dollars to pay for her gas, and dresses.
The funeral was for Manny Herrera who passed away recently and has been a friend of Raul Grijalva for years. Most of you might be reading this and saying so what Raul absolutely revolts me but please remember most Republicans and especially Latino Democrats have a strong Christian/Catholic background. As humans we must remove ourselves from politics when it comes to the death of loved ones. Raul Grijalva was in grief, and so was the Herrera Family and Gabriela Saucedo Mercer was trying to gain political points from it.
Here is a quote from Yolanda Herrera representing the family:
Three times Gabriela Saucedo Mercer has disrespected my family. She does NOT know us, she may know of us, not the same thing. To use my brother’s memorial service for politics is beyond shameful but to hit me on the head while I was in prayer after receiving communion so I would notice her is beyond forgivable. You overstepped, shame on you…my family is mourning. Congressman Grijalva knows my family and was a friend of my brother and was respectful during the service unlike you. Shame on anyone who votes for Mercer.
We are of course not saying to vote for Raul Grijalva, but with 19% of the voters in CD-3 being Republicans we recommend writing in whatever you like.
