Wamp faulted for footage of Chattanooga National Cemetery

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN. (Times Free Press) -- Weston Wamp used video footage shot at Chattanooga National Cemetery for two political ads without permission, prompting the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to send a cease-and-desist letter to his congressional campaign.

Titled "Congratulations Congress," the ad ran for several days on Chattanooga television stations. It stopped airing earlier this month, but remained online. Wamp removed the ad from YouTube after a Veterans Affairs official contacted his campaign Thursday.

"It's a two-second shot of something people drive by every day," Wamp said. "It didn't occur to me as something that would be seen by anybody as inappropriate."
