Art Torres is - or was until very recently - the Chairman of the California Democratic Party. In 1995, he said this:
"[Proposition] 187 was the last gasp of white America in California."
The article appears to have been created by /User:Butros in February 2006, and it was mostly just a stub. In April, the quote above was added, and /User:Asbl put it in its own section shortly thereafter. However, the
23:38, 15 May 2006 revision saw that whole section being deleted, including the quote. It wasn't until the
04:43, 26 August 2006 revision that it was added back in. That addition certainly contained some POV language, and that was eventually made somewhat NPOV, with the current version including it in a "Controversial statement" section.
The article is currently the top Google result for his name in quotes.
Bottom line: for over three months, anyone who came to that page and who didn't know about the quote beforehand will have received a sanitized view of that Democratic official.
