Last week, one of California's potential Democratic Senate candidates, Kamala Harris, was revealed to have an aide operating a secret police force right under her nose. This week, the other choice, Loretta Sanchez is in trouble for racial insensitivity after a video of her making a gesture offensive to Elizabeth Warren (among other members of our Native American population) surfaced.
The video, which was filmed at a Democratic convention on Saturday, depicts Sanchez trying to answer the question of whether a group of "Indian American" supporters were, in fact, Native American or were immigrants from the Indian subcontinent. Sort of.
The video, which was shared on social media, shows Sanchez tapping her hand over her open mouth and making a whooping sound while speaking to a group of delegates Saturday.
Sanchez’s rival, Attorney General Kamala Harris, called the gesture “shocking.”
