Ohio officials say Noem website used photos without consent
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Ohio officials say a website unveiled by South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem to promote her campaign to ban transgender women from women’s sports is using photos without consent.
Ohio Democratic state lawmaker Casey Weinstein says the website “defendtitleixnow” features images from Hudson, Ohio and other neighboring communities.
Hudson City School District officials says hey did not give permission for anyone to display the photos and object to them being used “in a political endeavor.”
Noem spokesman Ian Fury says the site is not run by the state and the web developer obtained the rights to all the photographs.
