You mean aside from playing up the 'novelty' of his Asian heritage, or aside from the fact that a dick hair over 25% of the white electorate got this man (running against an indicted incumbent)into office is being played out like a landslide or a mandate for change?

My favorite line is "Whites, fed up with the scandals around Mr. Jefferson, who is black, turned out in force, and blacks stayed home". The idea that whites were voting purely on their distaste for scandal is absurd. And I'm sorry, but a 25% turnout is hardly what I would call "in force".
