Rich Whitey Goes Green

Fun times at TPM:

Rich Whitney is the Green party candidate for governor in Illinois this year. But there’s been a small matter of a typo on the state’s electronic voting machines. On electronic voting machines in 23 wards — about half of which are predominantly African-American districts — Whitney’s name isset to appear asRich Whitey“.

Whitney is unhappy about this and is investigating what remedy he has. For whatever reason, the problem can’t be fixed, even those these are on electronic machines, rather than on paper ballots.

  1. I’msure it was just a simple mistake and that the person responsible isvery sorry about it…

  2. TheAwl.com has been calling the guy Wealthy Caucasian for days. The fact that he’s the Green candidate just makes it funnier.
