Republicans Use Stock Photo of Black Woman in Blacks-Are-Republicans-Too Ad

What the hell?  Republicans couldn’t come up with one real, live black female Republican for their new ad claiming that blacks are Republicans too?  Nope.

From TheDailyBanter:

Earlier, we told you about the enormous fail that is the #IAmARepublican hashtag campaign, and the equally enormous fail of an ad campaign to which it was pegged. As crummy as the “Republicans Are People Too” ad is, you would think that at a minimum, it would feature actual people who are actual Republicans. You would be wrong.

Lots of ads use stock photos, of course, but if you are trying to court a group of people you have been aggressively ignoring as a matter of political strategy, you might want to think about finding a real person to be in your ad.

More…

But no!  Click on “More…” immediately above and scroll down.  This stock photo has been used in ads ranging from the Georgia Association of Black Women Attorneys to one for a virtual office assistant to a Christian counseling center to a payday loan outfit.

It’s available for purchase at iStockPhoto.com filed under “Happy Portraits.
What Republicans put out for public consumption is fake through and through.
