Jeb Bush is an ‘#HonoraryLatino’ after he checked ‘Hispanic’ box on his 2009 Florida registration form

Likely Republican presidential contender Jeb Bush, who was popular among Spanish-speaking voters while Florida governor, marked himself as ‘Hispanic’ on a 2009 voter registration application.

The New York Times posted a fuzzy copy of the form on Monday, which it said it obtained from the Miami-Dade County Elections Department.

A Bush spokeswoman said it was unclear how the error was made.

    I don’t see this clown as being anything more than a private citizen as he has way too much baggage.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

          Well, we’ve got our hands full up here with Justin Trudeau’s dynastic ambitions.
          I really don’t think it’s going to happen.
          But, in sports, there’s a reason they play the game.
          You just never frickin’ know.

    ¡Ay carumba!

    Will race become as flexible as gender identity in the liberal universe? Jeb Feels hispanic, so therefore he is one?

    Anyway, who wants a doofus who can’t fill out a simple form to run the country?

      At least half the voters in the previous two elections.

      The problem is that such a box to be checked was even there.
