Allen County Commissioner Nelson Peters’ campaign website had an early hiccup last week.

Within a few days of launching his site, Political Notebook was contacted by Nathan Gotsch – a former local blogger – regarding one of Peters’ pictures.

Gotsch claimed it was taken by him during the 2007 mayoral primary and Peters did not have permission to use it. The photo was of Peters dressed in a suit sitting behind a desk.

When asked about the photo, Peters said he didn’t remember where or when the picture was taken but to avoid any problems he removed it immediately.
