Fake Facebook Campaign Photo Of Judge And ‘The Rock’ Removed
LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas judge's campaign manager has reached out to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to ask if a fake picture of him and the judge standing together is OK to use on the campaign Facebook page.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the picture with Johnson was posted on Tuesday and then removed the next day from Las Vegas Municipal Judge Heidi Almase's re-election Facebook page.
Jennifer Barrier, the campaign manager, says she knows Johnson through her late father, James "Buffalo Jim" Barrier, who was a wrestling promoter. Barrier says she doesn't think Johnson will mind, but she wants written authorization before posting the photo, again.
The doctored image combines a campaign photo of Almase with a three-year-old picture of Johnson in a gray button-down shirt.
