Podesta Emails: Clinton Should Reach Out to 'Needy Latinos'

In a new batch of emails released by WikiLeaks, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta urged Hillary Clinton to reach out to former Energy Secretary Fedrico Pena and former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson in an email titled “Needy Latinos and 1 easy call.”

The email also shows Podesta referring to Richardson as “a d***”, but that it was worth having him in a good place because he was going on stations like Univision and Telemundo a lot.

Podesta ends that segment urging Clinton to call the former governor, but adds “but if it’s too galling, don’t bother.”

This comes on the heels of an earlier email release that shows Neera Tanden, President of the Center for American Progress, emailing Podesta bemoaning that there were “4 white boys” running for President and urging him to “roll out some people who look like the rest of America soon.” Podesta replied with a sarcastic “Really, don’t you think I know that?”

Another slew of leaks showed Clinton aides openly mocking and conservative Catholics, calling them “an amazing bastardization of the faith,” as well as plotting to create a so-called “Catholic Spring” in an attempt to move the faith away from “a Middle-Aged dictatorship.
