Democratic Virginia Sen. Mark Warner was accused by his opponent on Tuesday of photoshopping the Virginia State Police logo out of a photograph on his campaign website.
At the top of Warner’s website, he is shown wearing a leather jacket which appears to have a Virginia State Police logo on the top left side, lower down on the same page, the same photo appears without the logo. His opponent Daniel Gade questioned whether Warner was “ashamed” of the police on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.
“It’s sad that Mark is so ashamed of the police,” Gade told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
“First he defunded them by $50 million dollars as Governor and now he is photoshopping them out of his campaign. Mark says he wants police reform, but voted against it because it was ‘token legislation.’ He clearly just wants to airbrush the police away.”
Hey @MarkWarnerVA, are you that ashamed of the Virginia State Police that you photoshopped off their logo from your jacket on your campaign website? First defunding the police as Governor, now this? pic.twitter.com/69Zxcmnwcp
