A white, conservative Texas politician tired of “all the shenanigans” won an election in a majority-black district by pretending to be black, according to news reports.

Houston television station KHOU interviewed Dave Wilson about his unorthodox strategy.

“Nobody was more shocked than me,” said Wilson, who admitted his campaign literature features pictures of black “supporters” he simply lifted from the Internet.

“Every time a politician talks, he’s out there deceiving voters,” said Wilson, a “gleeful political troublemaker” and one-time fringe candidate for Houston mayor.

Wilson was elected to the Houston Community College System board by the narrowest of margins — 26 votes.

He defeated 24-year incumbent Bruce Austin, who said he was “rather disgusted” by Wilson’s tactics. “I don’t think it’s good for both democracy and the whole concept of fair play. But that was not his …

The family of an abducted Louisiana woman rescued her and killed her abductor Friday, according to news reports.

Police and family members in Lafayette Parish began searching for her immediately.

Her family found her first.

Video on The Advertiser website shows a group of armed men on ATVs surrounding the abandoned house and Arceneaux crying after being rescued.

Police said the family was searching the area and heard a woman scream. About a half-dozen men kicked in the door of the house and confronted Scott, who began stabbing Arceneaux, police said.

What happened next is not clear, police said, but gunfire erupted and police that arrived at the scene found Scott dead from injuries sustained …

Woman having sex at Waffle House uses burger for sandal

Getting ’scattered and smothered’ at Waffle House is fine. Getting ‘uncovered’ gets you a heaping helping of trouble.

Loganville police ran across the latter early Sunday morning in the parking lot of the Waffle House on Atlanta Highway, according to an article on Patch.

A police officer said a man and woman were observed having sex in a Dodge truck outside the restaurant.

When approached by police, the man in the truck put on his pants and handed over his ID.

The woman had to be told multiple times to get dressed and eventually tried to wear a hamburger on her foot like a sandal, the police report said.

The aura of romance was spoiled by a breathalyzer test, which returned a result of 0.154 for the man and 0.216 for the woman. The legal limit is 0.08 in Georgia.

But the “loud” and “argumentative” couple said they weren’t driving and the truck had been in the parking lot all day.

They were charged with public intoxication, loitering and hamburger abuse.

Here’s more news to get …

Police say they know what a 17-year-old Texas girl did last summer.

Chelsey Elizabeth Taylor is charged as an adult with one felony count of “compelling prostitution” for talking more than a dozen of her “easily manipulated” friends into having sex with a 62-year-old man, according to a report by Houston’s khou.com.

Police say Taylor met Michael Wayne McIntosh, a business owner from the Houston suburb of Friendswood, while working as a hostess at a sports bar.

In June, McIntosh allegedly convinced Taylor to have sex with him for money. From June to October, Taylor convinced her friends at Clear Springs High School in League City to do the same thing, police say.

Prosecutors say Taylor drove as many as 15 of her friends to McIntosh’s home and took a cut of the money they were paid by the man they called “Money Mike.”

McIntosh allegedly paid at least $3,600 to the girls who …

Idaho?

Nope,  “Udaho” sounds like the message sent to a high school basketball coach fired for a photo she posted on Facebook.

Pocatello High School girls basketball coach Laraine Cook was fired in late October by the Orwellian-sounding “School District 25″ for a photo that showed her fiance’s hand over her bikini-clad breast.

Cook pulled the photo within 24 hours of posting it and high school administrators reprimanded her in July.

In October, an anonymous busybody sent a copy of the photo to the school district, which fired Cook and reprimanded her fiance, Pocatello High head football coach Tom Harrison.

Cook led the girls basketball team to a third-place showing at the 2013 state tournament. Harrison has won 10 state football championships and was inducted into the Idaho High School Football Hall of Fame in 2000.

Cook is filing a lawsuit against …

How big is football in south Georgia?

It’s so big that they use public school buses to ferry folks to the really big college games.

The Valdosta Daily Times reports school buses stolen from Lowndes County in south Georgia have been recovered at the site of the Georgia-Florida football game.

Georgia won that game, of course, because the Gators and their fans are mostly sissies.

The buses were stolen in October and the game was played Saturday.

The Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office was contacted Saturday by someone who said the buses could be found at the stadium.

The school system retrieved the buses Tuesday.

The article does not say if keys were found with the vans or if the vehicles were broken into, but this smells as fishy as a week old dead gator.

Bigfoot hunter shot by Bigfoot hunter

Why do people climb Mt. Everest? “Because it is there,” to quote a fellow who died trying.

Why do people hunt Bigfoot? Because it’s not there but hunters like a challenge.

Unfortunately for one Oklahoma shooting victim, Bigfoot hunters tend to have itchy trigger fingers.

Rogers County Sheriff Scott Walton told a local news station how a recent manly expedition went awry.

Saturday night, a couple of big game hunters near Tulsa decided to make history by slaying the mythological beast. The two men got their guns and headed on over to 177th East Avenue and Tiger Switch Road, an area wedged between two golf courses and a nature preserve, which sounds just like the kinda place Bigfoot might like.

One of the men, Omar Pineda, 21, heard a “barking noise” and got jittery. His gun went off and he accidentally shot his friend.

The injured man and his former buddy were able to scamper on over to the QuikTrip to meet an ambulance.

When the men …

Are you racist if you have a gun in your home?

According to a study by foreigners, yes.

Researchers in England and Australia randomly dialed phone numbers until they found white voters willing to take part in their study. Those who agreed to participate were paid $10 a month from January 2008 to September 2009 and provided Internet access if they didn’t have it.

Respondents were quizzed to gauge their level of racism.

Here’s a few of the questions:

  • How well does the word ‘violent’ describe most blacks?
  • How much do you agree with the following statement? “Generations of slavery and discrimination have created conditions that make it difficult for blacks to work their way out of the lower class.”
  • “When it comes to politics, would you describe yourself as liberal, conservative, or neither liberal nor conservative?”
  • “Do you think the federal government has become so large and powerful that it poses an …

Fired librarian reported boss having sex

You never know what you will learn when you visit the library. An assistant librarian in New Mexico claims she’s learned quite a bit.

In a lawsuit, Jamie Kurz alleges she was fired from her job in Estancia, N.M., after she told the mayor her boss was having sex in the library’s children’s section.

Kurz’s lawyer told KRQE reporters his client showed up early to work one Friday in August and saw two vehicles in the parking lot. One belonged to the head librarian and the other was a city maintenance truck.

Once inside, Kurz said she heard “unusual noises” and found her boss and a city maintenance worker having sex on the floor.

The maintenance man asked Kurz to not say anything because he and the head librarian are both married to people they do not have sex …

Most Americans don’t need more reasons to hate a group that burns down churches, but here’s another one that may or may not be true.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, which recently was ousted from power by the Egyptian military, is accused of soaking puppies with gas, lighting them and throwing them at the army, according to reports on Breitbart.com and other websites.

According to animal rescuers in New Jersey, only three of 20 puppies used as firebombs were able to be rescued. Those animals can be seen at petfinder.com.

But is the story true?

A reporter from The Guardian says he finds the story difficult to believe.

“Gathering 20 puppies, transporting them to a protest, dousing them in petrol, and then throwing them at soldiers while being teargassed strikes me as not just impractical, but nigh-on impossible,” said Patrick Kingsley in a Huffington Post UK …
