From the San Diego Union Tribune:

If an election can turn on a sentence, this could be the one: ‘You don’t need papers for voting.’

On Thursday night, Francine Busby, the Democratic candidate for the 50th Congressional District, was speaking before a largely Latino crowd in Escondido when she uttered those words. She said yesterday she simply misspoke.

But someone taped it and a recording began circulating yesterday. After she made that statement at the meeting, Busby immediately said: ‘You don’t need to be a registered voter to help (the campaign).’

She said that subsequent statement was to clarify what she meant….

Busby said she was invited to the forum at the Jocelyn Senior Center in Escondido by the leader of a local soccer league. Many of the 50 or so people there were Spanish speakers. Toward the end, a man in the audience asked in Spanish: ‘I want to help, but I don’t have papers.’

It was translated and Busby replied: ‘Everybody can help, yeah, absolutely, you can all help. You don’t need papers for voting, you don’t need to be a registered voter to help.’
