    White candidate pretends to be black to win election







    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.

    According to CBS affiliate KHOU-TV, Wilson's direct mail campaign included a flier with smiling black faces he says he found on the Internet. "Please vote for our friend and neighbor Dave Wilson," the accompanying text read.

    In another flier, the text said he had been endorsed by Ron Wilson, a popular black former state representative. But the Ron Wilson who endorsed him was Dave's cousin Ron, not the ex-lawmaker.

    "He's a nice cousin," Wilson told the network, chuckling. "We played baseball in high school together."

    Nevermind his cousin lives in Bloomfield, Iowa, some 940 miles from Houston.

    On Tuesday, Wilson defeated Bruce Austin, the 24-year incumbent, by a margin of just 26 votes.

    Austin, who is African-American, called Wilson's tactics "disgusting."

    Being nice this time, your question is answered in the article, but next time, please click and read:


    Austin said he would seek a recount, but Bob Stein, a political scientist at Rice University, believes the vote will stand.

    "I suspect it's more than just race," Stein said. "The Houston Community College was under some criticism for bad performance. And others on the board also had very serious challenges."

    I didn't ask about a recount. I asked about a recall. That's where a petitioner gets enough signatures to get an elected official kicked out of office. In this case, because of fraud. In Michigan, we have that ability

    Laws governing recall in Texas


    Contents
    [hide]
    Recall of local elected officials in Texas is available only in political subdivisions that have their own charter, and only if their charter specifically authorizes recall of the local elected officials.
    Texas has about 1,200 cities and 352 of those cities have their own charter. In the terminology of the state, these are known as the "home rule cities." To become a "home rule city" or a "charter city", the population of the city must be over 5,000 and its voters must have held an election to adopt a home rule charter. Over 90% of the state's home rule cities, or close to 320 of them, do include a local recall provision.[1]

    He is a no-good bum. I believe the fact that he did not put his face on the flier showed that he had something to hide. Something should be done. He should charge with some kind of offence...not sure what:(

    But what's the take away dunwiddat? As a people, we are new at engaging in politics, correct? Let's settle on this, we've got to involve ourselves, totally, inside the political landscape of this country we inherited, can we touch and agree on that basis of fact?

    If you can, play the video, the whole thing was a joke, he wasn't serious and didn't think he would win, but he did.

    This circles back to my earlier comments:
