First the sticker shock:
"When it was brought to my attention by Joey Horta it was shocking," said District 40 State Rep. Terry Canales.
And now the mudslinging.
Canales is calling out Fox News host Bill O'Reilly after making what Canales calls ignorant claims about the people of South Texas.
"Stereotypes in general are ignorant and that was a stereotype and Bill O'Reilly ought to know better."
The District 40 representative is referring to an O'Reilly Factor broadcast where the name sake basically called the border and South Texas a hub for food stamp fraud.
