'Asian Trapped in a White Body': Hawaii Rep's Remark Stirs Public Outrage

A spokesman for Ed Case explained that the newly sworn-in congressman was referencing something that his Japanese-American wife says about him, but some accused him of trying to score political points by playing the race card.
