Puerto Ricans Cheer Weiner a Week after Jews Booed Him

Monday, June 10th, 2013

New York City’s annual Puerto Rican parade gave the city’s mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner a rousing welcome Sunday, one week after the controversial candidate was roundly booed at the annual Israel Day parade.

“You got the best name ever! Everybody loves a Weiner! There goes our next mayor. You could run for president with a name like that,” shouted one Puerto Rican parade participant into a microphone, as reported by The New York Daily News.

Weiner’s supported played down the sexting scandal, which was the source of a nasty response by Weiner in the Israel Day parade.

Puerto Rico, Not Israel, May Soon Become the 51st State

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

In a two-part referendum held on Tuesday, Puerto Rico voted in favor of becoming a U.S. State.

Congress would need to approve Puerto Rico’s full entry into the Union, if this move goes forward.

Puerto Rico became an American territory in 1898, an it’s residents acquired U.S. citizenship in 1917, but the 3.7 million Puerto Ricans living on the island aren’t allowed to vote in U.S. elections unless they are actually living in the U.S. 4.6 million Puerto Ricans live within the United States.

It looks like Israel may lose it’s unofficial title as “The 51st State”.
