SMH: White Activist Deceives Voters
A White activist is coming under fire for pretending to be Black in order to win votes.
Yes, you read correctly. Conservative White Republican Dave Wilson, of Houston, allegedly tricked voters in an overwhelming Black district into believing he was one of them.
Wilson, an anti-gay activist, used fliers with pictures of Black people he obtained from the Internet and said he was endorsed by Ron Wilson…as in his cousin from Iowa, not the former Texas state representative.
As a result, Wilson received 26 more votes than incumbent Bruce Austin and was elected to the Houston Community College board. You can hear more from Wilson here:
