New Democrat Party Finance Chief dined with Fidel Castro

And people still wonder why Cuban Americans tend to be Republicans.

Via the Weekly Standard:

New Dem. Finance Chief Dined With Fidel Castro

Politico reported this morning that "Henry R. Muñoz III of San Antonio -- an Obama bundler and a national chairman of the Futuro Fund, a group of Latino leaders who raised money for the president’s reelection -- is expected to be named DNC Finance Chair, the first Latino to hold the title."

What's also interesting about Muñoz, though Politico omitted this fact, is that he at least once dined with Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

"Muñoz’s clout has only expanded in the ensuing years — in politics, philanthropy and his profession," mysanantonio.com reported two years ago.

"He dined with Fidel Castro in Cuba and raised funds at his own Monte Vista mansion for presidential hopefuls, including Bill and Hillary Clinton."

There's no word on the conversation Muñoz had with Castro, or if that was the only time the two met.
