Speaking of Jeb Bush, as it seems we must all too often this year, you’ll never believe what he did the last time he registered to vote:
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush once identified himself as Hispanic on a voter registration form, according to a news report.
On a 2009 Miami-Dade County voter registration form, the Sunshine State Republican and likely 2016 presidential contender, who is white, selected “Hispanic” in the “race/ethnicity” field, The New York Times reported Monday.
Over his political career, Bush has repeatedly emphasized his ties to the Latino community. The former governor is fluent in Spanish; lived in in Venezuela for two years; and his wife, Columba Bush, is from Mexico.
But Jeb Bush, the son of George H.W. Bush and the brother of George W. Bush, is white.
Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt — maybe he’s one of those elusive White Hispanics.
