Likely 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush is absolutely, undeniably white. Sure, he was governor of Florida, lived in Venezuela for two years, speaks fluent Spanish, and has a Mexican-born wife. But he’s still white.

So, it raised a few eyebrows that on a 2009 voter registration application, Bush indicated that he was Hispanic.

Bush says it was a mistake.

But Florida Democrats pointed not on their Facebook page that its also a 3rd Degree felony to give false information on a voter registration application.
