One California Republican Gubernatorial candidate is slamming the Motor City.
“Fresno looks like Detroit.  It’s awful.” That’s a direct quote from Meg Whitman — the former Ebay C.E.O . Wednesday to the Editorial Board of the San Jose Mercury News. 
The San Fransisco Chronicle said Whitman was talking about what the recession has done to one of California’s largest cities, when she described Fresno as a lot like the economically depressed city of Detroit.

Whitmans has since apologized for the comparison.
