Gerlach's Ethnic Donations

The spokesman for Congressman Jim Gerlach's reelection campaign has said that his opponent Dr. Manan Trivedi is playing the race card by raising money from the Indian-American community.

It should be noted that the Congressman accepted a donation from the Ukranian Federation of America and that his fec reports are full of donations from people with surnames like Chernyk, Horbowy, Gubernick, Tabak, Tykoicnski, and so on. So what if Gerlach is Germanic (or Dutch or Scandanavian, depending on who you read), and not Ukranian -- they look alike to me. I think he might be exploiting his ethnic background and playing the "race card."
