The use of Mayor Bloomberg’s Spanish during his press conferences has sparked passionate Twitter messages asking him to stop speaking Spanish as well at people thanking him for speaking in Spanish.
The account was started by Rachel Figueroa-Levin (@Jewyorican), a self-described Jewyorican mom blogger from the Inwood section of Manhattan.
