Separated at Creation?

I was goofing around looking into the background of this story, and through the main guy’s Wikipedia page I found this Wikinews story. Doesn’t the guy on the left look a lot like the guy on the right?

(The original piece begins “Ernie Chambers is Nebraska’s only African-American state senator, a man who has fought for causes including the abolition of capital punishment and the end of apartheid in South Africa.” I would not call those particularly out-there causes. Anyway, though I also appreciate that Chambers seems to get photographed in roughly the same T-shirt I’m now wearing, I have to say that I don’t have much sympathy for his lawsuit; he was trying to show that another lawsuit was frivolous, and while there may have been no basis for an alleged rape victim to sue a judge who ruled against her, the judge’s conduct was absolutely fricking appalling. I wouldn’t make my stand against frivolous lawsuits. I also think that prosecutors generally shouldn’t say that they think someone is guilty if they aren’t going to bring a case.)
