The photographer who took the picture used by tax assessor-collector candidate Jackie Peden to allege that undocumented people are voting in Galveston County elections said he did not give Peden’s campaign permission to use the photograph. He also doesn’t agree with the way the image was used, he said.

In an email to The Daily News, photographer Adam Hinton said he would never give permission for his work to be used in “racist garbage.”

Shame on Peden! She has been so wrong on so many things. Sad.

Sounds like another tourism opportunity right there - The Great Galveston Hot Air Balloon Hog Hunt.

Wayne can be the guest of honor at the first annual hunt. That is some cutting edge legislation there. A critical need is addressed!

“The exercise stuff never took off as much as I wanted it to,” Jackson told the newspaper.

Walking is the President's way of exercising and he does this while on the golf course like President Eisenhower but Liberals don't like when he does this. Are Liberals against exercise? I think not. Whatever Trump does they detest even if a previous Democrat president did the same thing. That's hatred.

your brain is poisoned

Wow - now even the president's former personal physician is on the enemies list. Who's next, Robespierre himself?

Carlos Ponce

Who said he "is on the enemies list"???? You're reading your bias into what is written, Bailey!

Bailey Jones

You're the one taking offense at his comments, Carlos, not me. I like a fat president.

Carlos Ponce

I took no offense, Bailey. Simply said that Trump's preferred exercise is walking while playing golf. Just like President Eisenhower. Now tell the world how that can be interpreted as taking offense.

"Liberals don't like when he does this. Are Liberals against exercise? I think not. Whatever Trump does they detest even if a previous Democrat president did the same thing. That's hatred." In an article that has no liberals, no democrats, and no hate. Perhaps you just had a discernment malfunction.

Carlos Ponce

I am not offended by what the doctor said. But Liberals are generally offensive. [beam]

Please made this public. Readers need to know!

...and the pedens are STILL "beating the same drum"!

One of their latest ploys is trying to intimidate others by employing their own "personal agitator". When you have to rely on a "school yard bully" to harass women at the polls and private social events, you are scraping the bottom of the barrel. [sad]
