White Republican wins election by convincing voters he’s black « Hot Air: "I’m not sure if we’re meant to be horrified by this story or if it’s just the greatest prank in the history of modern politics. The events in question took place in the race for a seat on the Houston Community College System Board of Trustees. (I know, right? How did the national media miss that one?) In a voting district which is listed as being “overwhelmingly” black Democrats by demographic breakdown, white Republican -and self described “troublemaker” – Dave Wilson clearly didn’t stand much of a chance, so he needed to come up with a new strategy. And he did… he went out on a lark and determined that he would just convince the voters that he was black."
