Great find by Daniel Denvir. Palling around with two of PA’s most high profile, er… “racial conservatives” should be a disqualifier…

Republican Gov. Tom Corbett will nominate Superior Court Justice Correale F. Stevens, who in 2007 appeared at a rally against the illegal “alien invasion,” to fill a temporary vacancy on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

“Something is a little bit bizarre here, backwards and upside down, and we need to turn that around,” Stevens told the crowd. “The city of Hazleton tries to enforce the law, and they get taken to court.”

Last month, Corbett drew unfavorable national media attention after he told a Philadelphia gathering that he could not find a single Latino to work in his administration.

Stevens, who joined State Rep. Daryl D. Metcalfe and then-Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta at the state Capitol rally in support of anti-immigrant legislation, was referring to a Hazelton law that bars hiring or renting to an undocumented immigrant, and makes English the city’s official language. The law had been struck down by a federal court. The U.S. Supreme Court later overturned the ruling and remanded it to a federal appeals court after they partially upheld Arizona’s controversial law.

    Great. More bigots. If I ever find myself in the presence of one of these clowns, I will lambaste them in one or more of the languages in which I am fluent. May include Spanish, unfortunately with a definite Greene County accent.

    I have little patience with militantly stupid people. Less so for crooked pollies.
