    How a white conservative became a black politician

    6 流覽量
    Dave Wilson ran an unorthodox campaign this election season where he led voters in the mainly Afro-American community into thinking he was just like them. And he is one of them he claims. "I'm tired of all the shenanigans going on with the Houston Community College System." But unlike his new constituents, the one thing he doesn't share with them is race; Dave Wilson is caucasian.

    Knowing that he probably stood an ice cube's chance in hell of actually being elected, he concocted a scheme to play upon the voter's racial heritage. Instead of his own face plastered on his campaign brochures, he lifted stock images of smiling black faces and used the words "Please vote for our friend and neighbor Dave Wilson."

    He even garnered more brownie points by saying he was "Endorsed by Ron Wilson," which longtime Houston voters would misinterpret as a statement of support from a former state representative who's also African-American. Making sure to keep it legit "Ron Wilson and Dave Wilson are cousins," a reference to one of Wilson's relatives living in Iowa. "He's a nice cousin, and he endorsed me," Wilson says.

    The loser in the race, 24 year incumbent Bruce Austin believes, "Wilson is a right-wing hate-monger" and the tactic he used was "against the concept of democracy and fair-play." Austin has called for a recount of the votes, which were won by the slimmest of margins — just 26 votes.
