GOP Tweets Photoshopped Congresswoman On Body Of Obamagirl
Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican National Senatorial Committee would be ashamed of themselves if they had a sense of shame. Some staffer tweeted a photoshopped picture of Kentucky Congresswoman Alison Grimes’ face on he body of the Obamagirl.
The National Republican Senatorial Committee scrambled to apologize Tuesday amid outrage from an ‘extremely offensive’ photo-shopped image tweeted by a junior staffer.
A tweet sent from NRSC’s official Twitter account asked if Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Grimes is the new ‘Obama Girl’ and featured Ms Grimes’ face poorly pasted on to the body of the original ‘Obama Girl.’
A spokesperson for the campaign committee blamed the ill-advised tweet on a junior staffer and said ‘disciplinary action has been taken.’
The amateurish photo-shop job shows Ms Grimes’ face superimposed on the body of ‘Obama Girl,’ the model who made racy videos about her crush on then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2007. The woman is wearing a snug-fitting Obama T-shirt with her midriff showing.
We agree, it’s extremely offensive, said the spokesperson. ‘It was a mistake made by a junior staffer and disciplinary action has been taken.’
