  • #VotaVato Voter Guide – U.S. Midterm Elections November 6, 2018

    Al-muthafuckin- right. The Vota Vato voter guide is back with the vengeance of the 2012 Mayan prediction. And if you thought my ancestors were bullshittin’ when they said the world was coming to an end – you must not be watching the apocalypse unfold before our very eyes.

  • #VotaVato Voter Guide – California Primary June 5, 2018

    Ay, ay, ay! This election is reminiscent of the 2016 Presidential race. Liberals all in their feelings because all of the candidates are meh – yet they’re trying desperately to convince you that their horse is the one to place your bet on.

    Meanwhile, Lefties in the hood are shrugging their shoulders ‘cause none of these candidates truly embody the progressive values we seek in our leaders.

  • #HoodDigest Vota Vato – 34th Congressional District, April 2017

    More Latinos are running for this Congressional seat than attended Rubi’s Quinceañera. You’d think they were giving away free tamales in the House Of Representatives the way that so many of my gentes jumped in this race. A point on this crowded congressional competition: saying you will stand up to Donald Trump is easy! Calling out his cadre of racist buffoons is a nobrainer. Shit, Fox News and the Koch brothers are standing up to that mamon!
