MN Senate GOP on Twitter
Today, Star Tribune political editor Patricia Lopez and Strib photographer Glenn Stubbe took issue with the MNGOP Senate communications team for doctoring Stubbe's classic Mark Dayton/Zygi Wilf photo in the tweet at the top of this post.

Stubbe tweeted, "Folks this is wrong and should come down." Lopez then upped the ante by suggesting the Strib could take legal action.

The MNGOP Senate communication team deleted the tweet containing the doctored photo just moments before we published this. It was replaced with this: After the image was swapped, Lopez offered up this tweet: -- Follow Aaron Rupar on Twitter at @atrupar. Got a tip? Drop him a line at arupar@citypages.com.

The Red Star can mis-report 90% of their stories but if anyone else touches one of their photos look out.

This is the Regressive Party and laws do not apply to them.

@atrupar Or whatever -- since I'm no lawyer and I'm sure I misused the term "fair use." Still, seems like a dick move by Strib to threaten.

You only think in black and white, that's why you're dumb and getting dumber. You can pay Mark Dayton and Zygi Wilf "my" share since you are so down with them and all they support.

@digitalprotocol  - Except that one can copyright a "picture."

With that said, I believe that THIS particular use would fall under the "fair use" provision of copyright law given that the photograph in question was used to parody the original work.

@WentRogue Would they have done same thing had DFL doctored the image?

@mingtran If the GOP wanted to stop it they could have but they didn't.  Now they are just lying to trick stupid people (you).

@atrupar Also, I would think doctoring the image is what makes it fair game. But yeah, they can be dicks like people were to Shepard Fairey
