Viral photo of man ‘peeing’ in background of Obama photo sends wrong message

President Obama is photographed often and this photo from Cincinnati is making the rounds on the Internet as the man in the background was rumored to be urinating. This is what circulated on the Internet:

Donovan Slack from Politico, who took the photo, was quick to write that the man was identified as Secret Service and that he was NOT urinating in the woods: A picture I snapped at a campaign rally in Cincinnati Monday showed President Obama speaking at a podium while a man stood on a hill behind him, facing the other direction.

“The individual in the light blue shirt in the background of the photo is one of our personnel,” Secret Service spokesman Edwin Donovan said. “There is no accuracy to the reporting associated with this photo thus far.”
