Senator Conrad “Sleepy Time Down South” Burns said something dumb! AP:

“The other day, the little fella who does our maintenance work around the house, he’s from Guatemala, and I said, ‘Could I see your green card?'” Burns said at a June meeting recorded by Democrats. “And Hugo says, ‘No.’ I said, ‘Oh gosh.'”

Burns spokesman Jason Klindt said the worker, Hugo Reyes, is legally in the United States, owns a painting company and the senator “never had any doubt” that Reyes is a legal resident.

So — this was recorded by Jon Tester’s campaign. Where’s the damn video? We’re not mocking this until we get video, dammit.
