Hillary's Felonious Fundraiser Threatens Republicans

I wrote before about Raul Martinez, the former Mayor of Hialeh convicted of extortion and racketeering, and tossed from office because of findings of voter fraud.
It seems he's also unable to keep his temper in line when talking with major editorial boards:

Former Hialeah Mayor Raul Martinez (D), who has been weighing a bid against Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R), apologized this week for his vulgar diatribe in an interview with The Miami Herald.

According to the newspaper, Martinez called the chairman of the state Republican Party a crude term for a female body part.

“I would debate any f—-ing Republican about my past,” Martinez is quoted as saying, adding later, “I will beat the s—- out of them.”

The state GOP was criticizing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) for attending a fundraiser held by Martinez, who has successfully fought off corruption charges during his career.

Martinez told the Herald he is still unsure about running against Diaz-Balart.

OK - there are lots of vulgar and uncouth crooks who run for Congress, but should they really be organizing fundraisers for the Democratic front runner?
