If the latino Republicans are this unhappy . . .

Can you imagine how angry the non-Republican ones must be?

Six members of Gov. Sonny Perdue's Latino Commission for a New Georgia have resigned, saying the governor did not seek their input before signing the state's new law against illegal immigration.

Some commission members expressed their opposition to the illegal immigration legislation, but others simply said they were upset that Perdue did not consult them.

"The fact that no feedback or opinions were elicited from this 'Latino Commission' make it very obvious to me that this commission is mere window dressing," Alex Salgueiro, president of the Savannah Restaurants Corp., wrote in his Tuesday resignation letter. "As a dedicated Republican and a citizen of Georgia, I do not feel it is a good use of my valuable time to serve on a sham commission."

Ouch.
