Ryan “The Body” Payne

SOUTH CAROLINA CANDIDATE CROPS HIS HEAD ONTO BODY OF MALE MODEL

If Republican Ryan Payne wins election to the S.C. House of Representatives this week, he’ll have a “body double” to thank for it.

The GOP nominee for S.C. House District 44 took political deception to an amusing new low recently when his campaign cropped his head onto the body of a male model from the Men’s Wearhouse dress apparel chain – and then posted the image on its website.

(Cue the “you’re going to love the way you look” jokes).

Take a look …

The photoshopped image of Payne appeared for an extended period of time on the banner of his campaign site – until its use was exposed by a Lowcountry, S.C. political blogger.

Shortly thereafter it was replaced by this image …

Yeah …

The sad thing about all of this is that Payne, 21, has built his candidacy around a pretty solid fiscal platform.  He’s also his high school’s valedictorian – meaning he really should have known better than to pull a stunt like this.

Will Payne’s photoshop gaffe impact his race against Democrat Mandy Powers Norell (yes, that Mandy Powers Norell)?

We’ll find out soon enough …
