A newspaper snafu on Monday made it appear that Broward County Commissioner Kristin Jacobs was for sale.
And for cheap — $112.98.
The Miami Herald website on Monday posted a story with a picture of Kristin Jacobs wearing large price tags ($99.99 and $12.99 for a total of $112.98) on her clothes from Marshalls. That’s right, price tags.
Somebody at The Herald must have come to their senses and realized that the original picture made an editorial statement about Jacobs.
Maybe after this comment on its website:
Roland Rio Jr.
Really? A picture of a Mayor with Marshall’s price tags hanging off her? The Miami Herald didn’t have a picture of Broward Mayor Kristin Jacobs sitting at a desk or standing at a podium or doesn’t have anyone who knows how to properly crop a picture? By the way… Good on Ms. Jacobs for being brave enough to put the rights of her constituents before Gov. Rick Scott’s petty politics.
Two people are at fault here.
First, The Herald editor who allowed this picture to run.
Second, Jacobs. Why did she ever pose in a picture with oversized price tags hanging off of her? What was she thinking…or not thinking? Didn’t she realize the picture confirmed everything folks thought about politicians being for sale?
