Republican Senator Frank Artiles is not fit to represent a diverse community that is District 40.
The Miami Herald reports that "he has dropped the n-word to a pair of African-American colleagues... after calling one of them a “f**king a**hole,” a “b*tch” and a “girl,”... and he called [Senate President] Joe Negron a p**sy." And FLA Politics blog reports that Miami Senator Frank Artiles called two lobbyists "f*ggots".
These are the latest in a string of violent, hateful incidents in which Frank Artiles blames his “temper.” There is never an excuse for racism or misogyny. This type of behavior would get you fired from your job anywhere, and we - the people - should demand he resign immediately.

- Protest with us tomorrow (April 20) at 10am in front of Frank Artiles' office located at 13501 SW 128th Street, Unit 115A, Miami, FL 33186.
