If Obama wants this guy to toady up and help with the campaign again this year, he’ll probably have to cough up some bail money.

From the New York Post:

The artist who created the iconic “HOPE” poster for President Obama’s 2008 campaign faces up to six months in the slammer for lying in court papers about the source of his inspiration.

Prosecutor Daniel Levy said the feds will likely seek “some term of imprisonment” after Shepard Fairey pleaded guilty yesterday to a misdemeanor charge of contempt.

Fairey, 42, admitted undertaking an elaborate scheme to make it seem that he used one Associated Press photograph of Obama “as a reference” for his famous image, when in reality he had used another AP image.

He made the false statements as part of a lawsuit he brought against the AP to block a potential copyright claim.

From top to bottom, everything about this administration is and always was based on lies, schemes and contempt, so why would anybody expect the guy who came up with the poster that represents it all to be any different?

    Lies, schemes, contempt; this guy`s got it all down. Is he plugging for a cabinet position ? Czar of stolen art perhaps !?

    “Violating the court’s trust was the worst thing I’ve ever done in my life,” Fairey said in Manhattan federal court.

    I’m not sure how perjury and lying to get out of paying a use fee on a copyrighted photo is “violating the court’s trust” but if it’s the worst thing he sees here then he still doesn’t get it and seems to be in major denial about the whole thing.

    But, that’s full on liberal-osity.

    Don't sweat it. BHO can just recycle the Che' poster, say it is him, and his slobbering acolytes will love it just as much.

    Forget about the bail money, Obama will just whip out a Presidential pardon….

    Speaking of pardons, I expect Urkel to set yet another record from Nov. `12 to Jan. `13 ……. he may even have so many pardons to sign, he`ll have to skip a vacation and a few rounds of golf ! If all goes as we hope, he may have to pardon himself !

    As a long time musician I'm unsurprised 'artists' deflect from their real source of 'inspiration' to skirt being called a direct ripoff. Like ROCK guitarists telling an interviewer Duke Ellington was their idol/inspiration? Really!?

    Pretty common misdirection actually. If it helped in ANY way to get Bammie elected, I hope this @$$clown ROTS in prison. Be funny when Dick O'Drama is forced to distance himself from all the people that helped get him elected last go round.

    He can't go that way again so he needs an all new cast of sycophants anyway.
