Trivia[edit]

I removed the trivia regarding the West Wing and the California 47th becuase the 47th that the West Wing refers to is now the 48th. Loretta Sanchez does not represent the staunchy conservative Newport Beach district she represents Garden Grove, Santa Ana and Anaheim.The preceding unsigned comment was added by 72.194.82.128 (talk • contribs) .


Use of "right-wing"[edit]

Is the City Journal really right wing? I know that many people will use "left-wing" or "right-wing" to hint at discrediting a particular source. What are its political tendencies?

I looked up Dick Army's page and there was an article from Counter Punch, which is quite "left-wing" but there is no mention of that for a reference to Dick Armey. Either both have to be labeled as such, or none should. Anyone?[SBraga]

In my opinion, both terms are pretty much meaningless and are only used to attack, not describe. 138.162.128.54 (talk) 11:55, 22 October 2008 (UTC)

Modifying a silly sentence[edit]

Modifying the following:

the "investigation" was without legal authority, especially considering Sanchez was seated by the Republican-controlled House

First of all, there is no need for scare quotes around the word "investigation." Saying that the investigation didn't carry legal authority is enough. There is no question that the INS conducted such an investigation. Second, the fact that Sanchez was seated by a Republican-controlled House was mentioned a few sentences prior. There is no need to add it again following the words "especially considering" since the composition of the House would have no effect whatsoever on the legality of the investigation. 24.113.82.222 13:35, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Loretta Sanchez Signature[edit]

If anyone can upload Loretta Sanchez's signature on the article I would be very thankful, I don't know how. ElmerBront (talk) 20:47, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Persistent insertion of controversial personal opinion[edit]

User 4GRANTED has repeatedly inserted unsubstantiated blog gossip about Representative Sanchez into Wikipedia. Wikipedia requires that content be verifiable, so this excludes rumors and unsubstantiated claims. If 4GRANTED persists in inserting this information and will not provide a reliable source to back it up, I will ask an administrator to protect the page.

Removed "Moderate and conservative positions" section[edit]

The "Moderate and conservative positions" section was horribly inconsistent with her voting record and her perception by voters and public interest group ratings. The section read as:

"Sanchez is a moderate politician, conservative on some issues including fiscal issues. She has supported a Constitutional amendment to outlaw flag desecration and encouraged states to prosecute violent juvenile offenders as adults.[1] She is a Blue Dog Democrat as well as a member of the New Democrat Coalition."

The two issues mentioned in this section are not the exclusive issues of moderates or conservatives but are in fact supported or opposed by politicians across the political spectrum. Sanchez is an unabashed liberal whose voting record easily demonstrates this fact. Both conservative and liberal groups identify her as such despite any attempt to modify her image by being a member of the Blue Dog Democrat's.
