Imagine my lack of surprise when I opened my mailbox today and found that Vernon Jones had again used a photograph of Obama in a mailer. This time Jones, who has no shame, upped the ante by also using pictures of Senators Edward Brooke, III, of Massachusetts and Carol Moseley Braun of Illinois. Jones also invited voters to make it "2-for-1!" on August 5, suggesting that Obama is on the same ballot as him by putting his name beside Obama's with red checks beside both. Voters may be disappointed to learn they cannot vote for Obama on August 5.
It takes a huge amount of hubris and a frank disrespect for Senator Obama, our party's nominee for President, to again appropriate his image for political gain despite a clear lack of permission from Obama. I would say that Vernon Jones should be ashamed, but I see no evidence that he has that capacity.
I will upload a copy of the mailer later this evening.Sphere: Related Content
