Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida, Europe and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Pictured in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A; September 2008 photo by me, South Beach Hoosier. © 2013 Hallandale Beach Blog, All Rights Reserved.

Coming Sunday: Scott Galvin's FL-17 congressional campaign is using MY blog photos on his direct mail campaign ads without my permission

Coming Sunday: Scott Galvin's FL-17 congressional campaign is using MY blog photos on his direct mail campaign ads without my permission.
CLUMSILY!

Pure and simple, on Thursday I caught Galvin engaging in unethical behavior even
BEFORE he ever got anywhere near Washington, which is certainly an Early Bird approach, I'll grant you, but frankly, I don't think even using MY photos will help him emerge on top on Tuesday, despite his appropriating something that's NOT his to use.

Just because a photo is on the Internet doesn't mean that you and your campaign staff get to use it for whatever purpose you want.

It doesn't belong to YOU!

Do I really need to explain this concept to someone who is running for U.S. Congress?

Apparently, in the South Florida of the year 2010, I do.

I'll connect-the-dots on this subject and show you the campaign piece he's so
clumsily using and show you the photos as I originally used them here on my blog.


And if you happen to have any Scott Galvin campaign mail anywhere in your house, don't throw it out -yet.
It'll come in handy on Sunday when you play a game of compare-and-contrast at home, though you won't have to put on your detective hat.


If this had been a tougher call and not such a slam dunk for my own brand of sleuthing, I might have needed to enlist the help of a top-shelf detective to handle the investigation.

There's a detective I've been hearing really great things about from friends out in Cali who might be of some help to us
in the future here in Hallandale Beach and Broward County, what with all the political miscreants and their lawyer/lobbyist acolytes hereabouts, though I should mention that he isn't cheap.

This cat goes by the name of
Mannix.
Joe Mannix.
Perhaps you've heard of him?

Now HE will get us the answers we want!


Plus, I'll also be analyzing campaign direct mail in Broward County for some salient signs the MSM has completely missed, and since South Florida's MSM has been particularly lazy and fact-challenged this particular summer of swelter, there's an awful lot to mull over.
All of that to come on Sunday.

I loved this TV show as a kid growing-up down here, as did all my friends!
