Not quite New Orleans…

Kimberly Williamson Butler, a mayoral candidate in New Orleans, is running a campaign photo (seen as a header on her website) of her standing in what appears to be the French Quarter. However, upon closer inspection, the photo seems to be the simulated French Quarter in Disneyland’s New Orleans Square.

Blending images with Adobe’s Photoshop and other photo editing programs are popular and easy to do, but isn’t using a picture of the French Quarter in Disneyland a little bit of a stretch? If you’re going to use the Disneyland picture, at least remove the obvious trash can! We’re all used to politicians stretching the truth and often times doing anything to get elected to office, but didn’t see or her campaign manager think that somebody might notice that Kimberly wasn’t posing in the New Orleans that she was running for election in?
