Herald photo used without consent. Anti-tax group targets Sal Pace.

A Washington anti-tax group used a Durango Herald photo without permission in an attack ad on congressional candidate Sal Pace, apparently in violation of the newspaper’s copyright.

Americans for Tax Reform, led by nationally known lobbyist Grover Norquist, used a Herald photo of Pace published Sept. 14 in the ad it is running against the Pueblo Democrat, who is challenging incumbent Rep. Scott Tipton, R-Cortez.

Tipton’s campaign had nothing to do with the ad, which is an “independent expenditure” allowed by federal campaign-finance law.

Americans for Tax Reform sought permission from the Herald to use the photo in a political ad, but multimedia director Josh Stephenson turned down the request.

1. Durango Herald better get their lawyers in order.

 

And sue the fuck out of Grover Norquist and his organization to bankruptcy.
