Images in the first video clip from a tax-exempt committee paving the way for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s (R) likely presidential campaign are foreign stock photos from foreign-based photographers.

The stock images used in the two minute video, from Walker’s Our American Revival Committee, were flagged by Buzzfeed shortly after the video was published. Our American Revival released the video earlier on Wednesday.

One image of an elderly man comes from Dualstock, a company based in Italy, according to Buzzfeed.

Another image, 17 seconds in, is of a woman taken by Sylwia Bogdanska, a photographer based out of Poland. Bogdanska’s studio is in Koluszki, Poland.

Buzzfeed reached out to Our American Revival but did not get a response.
