Rubio calls it unethical tactics, image now removed from Cruz website.
From TIME | by Zeke J. Miller: Marco Rubio’s campaign is firing back at Ted Cruz over a new website that includes a Photoshopped image of the Florida senator appearing to shake the hand of President Obama.
Rubio senior advisor Todd Harris gathered reporters at the rear of a Rubio campaign rally in Greenville, Thursday morning to hand out copies of the photo and to cast Cruz’s campaign as “desperate.”
“This is not Marco Rubio,” Harris said, gesturing to the photo. “This person, we don’t know who that is, but they Photoshopped Marco’s face onto somebody else. This is how phony and how deceitful the Cruz campaign has become.”
“There is so little honesty left in the Cruz campaign that they’re actually willing to Photoshop a fellow Republican’s face onto the body of some other person to completely invent an attack on Marco Rubio,” Harris added.
The website criticizes Rubio for standing with Obama on trade promotion authority—a position Cruz himself once held. “The only difference between Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz on TPA is that a month after voting for TPA, Marco continued to support it, Ted Cruz completely flip-flopped on it,” Harris contended.
