Kentucky Liberal Alison Grimes Posts Pro-Coal Mining Ad… With Photo of French Worker

Kentucky liberal Alison says she supports coal mining.
And to prove it she posted a photo of a French model.

Evidently, Grimes does not know any coal miners from Kentucky.
The Politico reported:

A European male model pretending to be a coal miner appears prominently in a newspaper advertisement released by Kentucky Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes.

The ad’s initial release resulted in lots of valuable, earned media for the Grimes campaign, which says it flagged the issue and replaced the photo before it ever actually went to print.

President Barack Obama’s new EPA rules on carbon emissions are politically toxic in Kentucky, so it’s no surprise that the Democrat challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is trying to distance herself. Her campaign blasted out an ad on Monday afternoon that says, “President Obama and Washington Don’t Get It … Alison Grimes Does.”

Accompanying that message is a large picture of a man in a hard hat with a sooty face holding out a piece of coal toward the camera. It was taken by Ukrainian photographer Victor Gladkov and is for sale on the photo website Shutterstock.
