Kevin Yoder sure does have cute kids. What? Those aren’t his kids? Not again!

What a good-looking family. In his new campaign video for Congress, Kevin Yoder appears to have a photogenic, all-American brood: three adorable girls and a boy, who seem to embody the heartland values Yoder espouses in his new campaign video.

Except those aren’t Yoder’s children.

If you just watched the video and didn’t know any better, you’d think these were Yoder’s kids.

They’re not. They’re likely his nieces and nephew (or models hired for cuteness).

This tactic isn’t new for Yoder, who’s running for Dennis Moore‘s congressional seat. Two of the girls and a dog appeared in Yoder’s campaign literature when he was running for re-election to the Kansas House a few years back. Even the dog wasn’t Yoder’s.

Within a week of the video going up on YouTube, Yoder accused Democrat Stephene Moore of being “disingenuous with voters.” 

“Either Stephene Moore is not being honest with voters or this is just a political stunt to position herself as someone she’s not,” Yoder’s June 17 press release reads. 

Uh, Kev, have you watched your video?

Can we get a disclaimer? Maybe some credits?

Left a message at Yoder’s office. I’ll update when I hear back.
