Coffman jokes, Dems pounce

The Colorado Democrats are hawking another instance of Rep. Mike Coffman’s unfamiliarity with the vernacular – this time the language of politics and humor. A blurry YouTube video shows Coffman at an Aurora Sister Cities International event. He stumbles twice on the name of Jim McGibney, honorary consul for the Republic of Korea, then cracks a joke about it. “I thought you were going to be deported, ” he seems to be saying in the fuzzy audio.

The Democrats’ press release notes that Coffman voted against the DREAM Act, which would have provided a way to citizenship for young people brought to this country, and to weaken or end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy.
