Tom Corbett’s new campaign website features a black smiling woman at the bottom of each page. The Pennsylvania Governor went on to tout his “Strong record of inclusion” next to the photoshopped image.

As Buzzfeed discovered, that picture as well as the everyday, middle class people appearing with Corbett, were all photoshopped stock images.

Not an actual black Republican

Everyone else in the graphic on Corbett’s site was photoshopped

[su_center_ad]The Corbett campaign admitted to BuzzFeed on Thursday that, “The whole website footer graphic is a work of Photoshop.”

The Corbett campaign criticized Wolf, saying, “Governor Corbett has a strong record of inclusion, while our opponent, Tom Wolf, was even criticized by members of his own party for his ties serving as the campaign chairman to an admitted racist arrested for murder and for handing out ammunition at a race riot.”

As Tommy Christopher at The Daily Banter  reported, the black woman featured in a recent ad was a stock image, too.

Wasn’t Condoleezza Rice available?

    More people will have seen the original photo then will see the story about it. A pure, unadulterated lie. Not a single person should vote for him.
    My view.

    When asked why he had no Latinos in his cabinet, Gov. Corbett’s response was that he did not know any.

    Why do they keep doing the same stupid things over and over?

    • Pilotshark October 17th, 2014 at 4:11 pm

      simple, cause they have dug such a big grove in their record it just keeps skipping over and over.

      but if you try sometimes you just might fine, one slightly ignorant one, that the lights come on dim and the back door cracks open.

    At least it looks like they actually *paid* for the image.
