It's not just kids in school who make social media blunders -- it's also the candidates who hope to serve on the local school board.

Raj Gandhi is taking heat this morning for a photo he posted to his own Facebook page in which he dresses in a neon green, Borat-like mankini.

Gandhi, a candidate for the Woodbury County School Board, says it was all a joke and that he did it as a dare.

The Washington County Watchdog posted the photo on its website and criticized Gandhi for his indiscretion.

It will be up to the voters whether they think it's harmless fun or a little too weird for Woodbury.

If he isn't friends with any students, which to prevent concerns with boundaries and ethics issues, he shouldn't be, then what does it matter? It was made obvious while reading the comments not a single person seemed shocked, offended or felt the need to comment about the inappropriateness for the first few hours of after its post!They really didnt seemed to concerned, even joked about wearing it in public. Besides he's really not showing anything more then if he was at the beach in shorts.

I wonder what would be said if Tom Emmer wore this and was running for school board.  Do you think people would commend the "courage" of him for wearing this?  

Ask yourself that.

"Too weird for Woodbury?" Well, I guess it has been 20 years since former mayor Kenneth Mahle resigned after pleading guilty to soliciting sex from a boy...

Who cares. I guess us for reading the article. People need to spend time not trolling the internet for gossip in disguise as news.

All I can say, is that if Woodbury doesn't elect this guy for that sole reason... then Woodbury is BORING.   I already presume Woodbury is BORING... so have fun with your boring lives and please don't tell me who won on "The X Factor" this week... not because I'm TiVoing it and don't want to hear any spoilers, but because I, in fact, DON'T GIVE A SHIT.

This is supposed to be funny. People can't do funny stuff any more? To insinuate that this has anything to do with a school's dress code is irresponsible.

As long as he knows when to use that sense of humor and when to squelch it, it's all okay by me.

Who cares? It was obviously a joke. Why don't people have a sense of humour?

This man would not have made me do jumping jacks in the lunch room and if tummy showed when i jumped up while wearing a hoodie put me in in school suspension i am sure of that. A damn school hoodie for god sakes. That is what they focused on..... Sad

I think critics should judge his dress code policy on its own merits and not on a photo from 2009. "Only enact enforceable policies ..." that sounds pretty sensible to me. The guy has a sense of humor, lighten up.

This is a ray of hope. Maybe we can get rid of the inane zero tolerance crap that has plagued our schools for the last 2 decades and actually worry about education instead of indoctrination.
