Another fake photo by Howard Kaloogian
By danx on Mar 31, 2006
In my Congressional District we're having a special election to replace disgraced Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham. One of the 18 candidates running is former Republican State Assemblyman Howard Kaloogian. He recently got caught for posting a scene of a street picture his group took showing how peaceful Baghdad is, that turned out to be suburban Istanbul, Turkey. (This was originally discovered by anthonyLA and jem6x of Daily Kos.)Kaloogian also was caught for claiming false endorsements from the California Pro-Life Council and State Senator Tom McClintock.
Anyway, here's another fake photo. On Kaloogian's campaign website is a photo of him posing with President George Bush, in a rotating "Flash" slideshow. (Here's a screenshot in case it's taken down or you don't have Flash). Why is it fake? Well, both Kaloogian and Bush's shoulder's merge into each other. This is more evident from a fuller-length photo on Gabriell Reilly's website. (Here's a copy in case it's taken down). Observe how Kaloogian and Bush merge into each other: Kaloogian's left shoulder appears to be behind Bush, and Bush's right arm appears to be behind Kaloogian! By itself, not a biggie, but with two fake photos and two fake endorsements, what can you believe?
