UPDATE: Romanoff has taken down the pictures of him meeting with his “constituents” in Denver
Former State House Speaker and failed U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff (D-Denver) has run for so many offices in the last few years it appears he’s lost his bearings.
The current 6th Congressional District candidate earlier today posted an album of pictures on his campaign Facebook page entitled “Visiting with Constituents.”
Only they’re not pictures from his 2013 run for Congress, but rather his 2010 run for U.S. Senate and include a picture of him meeting with people in Denver. The 6th CD is based in Aurora.
A few dead giveaways:
He’s wearing his U.S. Senate campaign t-shirt.
His “constituents” are wearing his U.S. Senate campaign gear:
And he’s campaigning in Denver, right in front of The Denver Post building on Colfax.
We know Romanoff is new to Aurora, but he’s been at this a few months now. He should at least be able to identify his new district on a map.
Mistakes like this aren’t likely to help him shed his carpetbagger reputation.
It’s also not the first time that Romanoff has “manufactured” constituents for campaign material. In 2010, Romanoff photoshopped an African-American woman to appear like she was standing next him for his website and was busted by Lynn Bartels.
Next thing you know, he’ll be photoshopping real Aurora residents into his campaign mailers.
