An amusing, er, little story out of Texas, where a Republican congressional candidate has been caught in some photo-shop shenanigans:
HOUSTON, Texas (AP) -- A mailer from a congressional candidate's campaign contains a photo of his head attached to an image of a different body that makes him look thinner.
The photo is presented as a true image of Dean Hrbacek, a Republican former mayor of Sugar Land, Texas. In reality, it is a computerized composite of Hrbacek's face and someone else's slimmer figure, in suit and tie, from neck to knee.
If you’re reading, Stephen Harper, don’t go getting any ideas…
I found this quote from the piece amusing:
Republican political consultant Allen Blakemore of Houston, who has no client in the congressional race, said there's no law against the practice "other than the laws of gravity -- the negative effect on your polling numbers and popularity when you do such things."Recommend this Post on Progressive Bloggers
