Axelturfing? "Doctor" at Sheila-Jackson Lee "Townhall" Not From Her District and Also Not a Doctor? And Was a Texas Obama Delegate?

I can haz political cos-play?

As always it's still in the digging phase, but as of yet, no "Dr. Roxanna Mayer" found on any database, but one Obama delegate named Roxanna Mayer found at the school where Sheila Talk to the Hand's husband works.

This one isn't in the bank yet, but it appears it's headed there.

By the Way: If this woman is as young as I imagine, how the hell did the reporter claim she was a "doctor"? Does she have a practice with Doogie Howser?

That seems like... an almost willful blindness, eh?

Update: At the link above, Patterico says he has proof, of a sort... but I don't know. The pictures I see show one woman who appears black, or half-black, and another picture of a white woman. I don't see them as the same woman.

Am I wrong? How does Patterico see this as a clear match when I don't think they look much alike at all? I don't even think they're the same race.

Also, a commenter tips me the reporter has responded to questioning:

This was the name and information that she gave at the public meeting. And there have since been questions about it, another person that I found on “linked in” that is a social worker intern at a drug council. However, no concrete proof of her misrepresenting herself. But we will be watching for her at future meetings to check her out. Best regards, Cindy Horswell

Well... see, now they kinda can't bury it. If this woman lied about being a "doctor"... that invites the question why she did so, eh?

Hmmm... A commenter at the Chron's account claims she's real:

Dr. Mayer treated my quintuplets after they contracted swine flu last year. She's a saint! My kids loved her, and I highly recommend her. FYI, Davesnothere, she recently re-married and her TX med license is under her former name.

I'm feeling in a walk-back kind of mood on this.

Hmmm... Okay, that "quintuplets" thing was odd, and RickR. informs me the first US cases of swine flu came this year, not last.

Another commenter says this picture of the student Roxana Mayer looks more like alleged "Doctor" Roxana Mayer, and he's right, the hair is closer, but still...

I'm provisionally back on the team on this one.
