Obama supporter and actress Eva Longoria is Texas congressman Joaquin Castro’s Spanish tutor.  He is the twin brother of San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro.

Vogue revealed this fact in its feature of Castro and his twin brother Rep. Joaquin Castro (D., Texas) in the March issue, according to the San Antonio Express:

As for the article itself, the most revelatory item comes from this tidbit: Actress Eva Longoria sends Joaquin instructional tapes to help him with his Spanish.

Julian Castro headlined the 2012 Democratic National Convention, which was a position to rally the Hispanic vote. He spoke a few lines of Spanish during his DNC speech even though he admits not knowing Spanish well.

Castro ran for mayor in 2009 vowing to lower crime rates and improve the city’s economy. However, as the Washington Free Beacon previously reported, he has fallen flat on his goals.

Meanwhile, San Antonio’s unsolved murder rate has increased from 24 to 39 percent from 2010 to 2011. […]

Additionally, San Antonio’s unemployment rate has increased from 7.2 percent to 7.3 percent during Castro’s time in office, and has reportedly reached as high as 8.1 percent.
