Candidate Wants Right to Shoot 'Wetbacks'

Texas U.S. Senate candidate Chris Mapp (R) told the Dallas Morning News that ranchers should be allowed to shoot on sight anyone illegally crossing the border on to their land and referred to such people as "wetbacks."

Mapp later defended his remarks to the San Antonio Express-News saying that use of the racial slur is as "normal as breathing air in South Texas."

He also called President Obama a "socialist son of a bitch."
