Not Cesar Chavez / by Mitra Kaboli | June 27, 2014

Not Cesar Chavez

There is a new Cesar Chavez on the scene. A former Republican, politician Scott Fistler has legally changed his name and was running as a Democrat for a seat in Arizona’s heavily Latino seventh congressional district. Chavez has turned down most press requests, and made some strange arguments regarding his name change. “It’s almost as simple as saying Elvis Presley is running for president. You wouldn’t forget it, would you?” But after a lawsuit by Alejandro Chavez, Cesar Chavez is officially off the ballot.
