Tom Corbett: Racist Photoshop Cadet

This kinda speaks for itself:

In an effort to sway black voters his way, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett has tried to make his re-election campaign more minority-friendly by including a photo of himself standing next to a smiling African American woman on his website.

The only problem is – this heartwarming scene never actually happened. Corbett’s campaign got the black woman from a stock photo and Photoshopped her in!

However, I will say that the tag “fake inclusion” has rarely been more appropriate – even if, here, it isn’t about trans issues.
