The Connecticut Post just published a statement from Governor Dannell Malloy about a WPIX-TV11 video that has East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo saying he "might have tacos" to repair Latino relations in his city in the wake of East Haven police officers getting arrested for racial profiling of Latinos.

"The comments by East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo are repugnant," Malloy said. "They represent either a horrible lack of judgment or worse, an underlying insensitivity to our Latino community that is unacceptable. Being tired is no excuse. He owes an apology to the community, and more importantly, he needs to show what he's going to do to repair the damage he's done. And he needs to do it today."
