Saw this on the Disturbed1 News

Los Angeles, CA – Yesterday an attorney for David Draiman and Dan Donegan, of Chicago rock band Disturbed, sent a letter to Campbell County Attorney James A. Daley, based in Newport, Kentucky, ordering him to immediately cease and desist distributing all copies of a flyer printed with photographed images of Draiman and Donegan.

The politically motivated flyer, which attacks Steve Franzen, Daley’s opponent for the County Attorney’s office in the November 2nd election, contains text implying that the individuals in the photos are “criminals” who have engaged in “child pornography, unlawful transactions with minors, assaults on police officers, and drug trafficking.” In addition to photos of Draiman and Donegan, the flyer features photos of members of rock bands Avenged Sevenfold and Stone Sour.

Disturbed’s attorney has demanded that Daley immediately stop distributing the flyer and destroy any remaining copies in his possession.

Over the last two days, the band's management office has received dozens of phone calls and e-mails from fans in the area who received the flyer, expressing their outrage.

WLWT News 5 in Cincinnati has reported on the flyer and interviewed Daley’s opponent Steve Franzen, who calls it “despicable.”

This is appalling! How stupid must one be to not know that using images of people without their consent can get you into a load of deep shit? Not just the famous and well-known, but ordinary folks like us.

Whoever put this flyer together is in a lot of trouble, especially if they KNEW the information being passed along about those pictured was FALSE!

There are pictures of the members of A7X and StoneSour, too, so this clown better be prepared for similar action from those groups as well.

*shakes head*

Whoever did that should know that it's not good EVER if you mess around with famous bands. Especially Disturbed.

Disturbed, A7X and Stone Sour....that person is pretty much f-ed right now, and so he should. This is despicable!

I really hope this doesn't affect Disturbed and the others!

^ just say no to Jim Daley.

Honestly, when I saw the name "Daley" I swore it was going to be a story about someone in Chicago politics, not some lawyer from Kentucky trying to get re-elected.

Yep, Mike... the guy's an idiot. And he's totally fucked, especially if David and Dan sue.

Anyone heard anymore about this? I'm trying to find information, and since it's election day here in the states, find out how he did in his race.

Anyone willing to guess how this turns out?

Oh I am sure of it.. of course the blame goes to part of the last update from the news station out there about the issue stated "Daley's campaign said that the ad was produced by a consultant and that Daley's campaign had been told the photos were "stock" photos. The campaign said the intent of the ad was "to draw a bright line between Jim Daley who has lived his life by the police motto to 'protect and serve,' ... versus Steve Franzen who has been a criminal defense attorney the majority of his legal career."
