Democrat Gene Wu represents Texas’ 137th district. And for whatever reason, he — or whoever’s manning his Twitter account — decided to rip on Gov. Rick Perry by using tired stereotypes about Asians.

Um, beg your pardon?
Uh RT @GeneforTexas: Perry gives head-scratching education spending numbers. Why so bad at math? He needs to hire some Asians. #txlege

@GeneforTexas Wow. Racial stereotype much?

@GeneforTexas Hey, that is a stereotype.

Well, he’s a Dem, and he’s Asian, so that makes it OK, right?
.@GeneforTexas I'm not sure if this is THE Rep. Wu or his staff, but I don't know how that last tweet was deemed appropriate. #txlege
