This is Dave Wilson, a conservative Republican and anti-gay activist in Houston. Wilson decided to run for a seat on the board at Houston Community College.
Realizing he was unlikely to win in a district where the voters are mostly black Democrats, Wilson decided to lead voters to believe he was black with his campaign materials.
"Every time a politician talks, he's out there deceiving voters," Wilson told KHOU.
The anti-gay activist, who once led a crusade against the city's lesbian mayor, used pictures of black people he lifted from the Internet in his flyers, which read: "Please vote for our friend and neighbor Dave Wilson."
Wilson's materials also said he was "endorsed by Ron Wilson," which could easily lead voters to believe he was referring to a black former state representative of the same name. But Dave Wilson also has a cousin named Ron.
"He's a nice cousin," Wilson gleefully said. 'We played baseball in high school together. And he's endorsed me."
