Re "Another Latino Legislator shames his community" (Viewpoints, Aug. 27): I don't see the most recent legislative escapades as a specifically Latino issue. I see it as an example of the arrogance that comes with one-party control of all the levers of state power.

The majority of our legislators have safe seats. They don't have to worry either about being re-elected or having their policies challenged. Voters get what they want.
