A Connecticut human-rights commission has rebuked a mayor who made a disparaging remark about Latinos.
The state Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities said Tuesday it unanimously approved a resolution condemning East Haven Mayor Joseph A. Maturo Jr. for saying last month he might have tacos as a way to do something for the community.
The Republican mayor made the remark in response to a reporter's question after the arrests of four police officers on charges they harassed Latino residents and businesses. He received criticism from all quarters, including Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy.
The commission voted Feb. 8 to approve a resolution saying Maturo demonstrated a lack of sensitivity to the Latino community.
The Republican mayor has apologized. His spokesman Frank Gentilesco says the taco comment is old news.
The four officers have pleaded not guilty.
