You can be sure lots and lots of Latino Catholics, even good and faithful ones, cast their votes for Villaraigosa simply because he's Latino. Mayor Hahn was no great ally of the unborn either, but Villaraigosa is even worse.
In the barrio where I live, Villaraigosa campaign signs were everywhere. My neigbors, including viejitas (little old ladies) who light their veladoras (votive candles) at church and pray the rosary, made it clear that they were voting for Villariagosa because he is Latino. Never mind that he represents everything that opposes our core values as Catholics and Latinos.
