A political ad opposing three Democrats is using a photo of an abandoned building to portray Chicago Public Schools to a downstate Illinois audience.
Illinois Public Radio's Tony Arnold reports.
The image shows a dilapidated building, with broken windows and chipped paint. It’s also on the stock photo website Shutterstock. A Republican Party spokesman says it’s up to the individual viewer to decide how they interpret the image. A CPS spokeswoman calls the image “disgraceful.”
