Rocky May Have Lied About His Past
Since the publishing of this article, the Delgadillo campaign has indignantly asserted that “he [Rockard Delgadillo] has never claimed to have played a down of football for either
Yet in an essay written by Mr. Rockard Delgadillo and posted at http://latino.si.edu/YoungAmericanos/page%205_rocky%20delgadillo.htm, (according to http://web.archive.org in 2003) he personally made the claim, “After graduating from Harvard with honors and spending a short time playing professional football in New York and Canada, I returned to my high school as a coach and teacher while waiting to start law school at Columbia University.”.
And even today, on the Delgadillo for Attorney General website (http://rocky2006.com/content/view/2/10), Delgadillo claims to have played “a brief stint as a professional football player…”
Ace Smith, consultant for the Brown campaign said: “Mr. Delgadillo needs to take responsibility for these falsehoods and apologize for his actions. He should start by deleting the false statements about his non-existent pro-football career off his Rocky2006.com website.”
