    Which side's low info voters?

    Dave Wilson is white. But to win a seat on the Houston Community College Board of Trustees in a district predominantly comprised of African-American voters, Wilson, a conservative Republican, led voters to believe he was black.
    Sorry, couldn't help but poke that in people's faces. If he was a Dem, we'd never hear the end of it....

    Where was the media in all this.

    Don't they always have cameras on cantidates no matter what they are running for?

    Come on, now. Who here hasn't pretended they were a member of a different race?

    Heck, I pretended I was Asian when I took the S.A.Ts.

He clearly intended to deceive, but at the same time, if you're so clearly under informed that you vote for the wrong guy and only find out after the election, I'm not going to feel too sorry for you.
    Actually we don't really know that he intended to decieve. All the video has of him is agreeing that the people in the fliers were black and that he had just "lifted" them off the internet. In fact the video also has him saying that he was surprised that he won. That could be an indication that he actually didn't intend for such to happen. In point of fact the only ones to say that he "implied" and "not denying" that he "implied" he was black were the reporters and the person that ran against him. They never once show in the video of them asking if he meant to imply it and him saying "yes" or some variation of that question being asked and answered in such a way.

    To be fair to the people of that district, the incumbent in that race was under a cloud due to mismanagement of the college. People were pretty mad at him and the other Community College Trustees. The incumbent did try to get the word out that the other guy was white. I'm sure he told everyone who would listen. But it may just be that people knowingly voted for the white guy over the black guy on the basis of the issues.

    On the other hand, the idea of identity politics being subverted to skewer one of its practitioners is too delicious not to savor.

    And the white guy didn't actually pretend to be black. He just didn't tell them that he wasn't black.

    In any case, the Community College's troubles have to do with, guess what, overspending. They are further in debt than any college their size, $617 million or so. They could use some input from a conservative.

    That was a pretty clever campaign. The guy deserved to win. Might even be good for the Community College. I hope the job pays good.
