$15000 human bill-board has to go

Who would agree to tattoo an uncertain political image on his face for $15000.00? A poor man who wants to feed himself and sees this as a golden opportunity.  I think it is a lot for any political party to ask a person to do.  This is the man’s face, not his back or arms.  If the Ryan-Romney team had won it would have been a whole different ballgame but who wants to be reminded of the losing team! I hope the guy is going to get some money to help him take the tattoos off his face.  Our political system has to change. This has gone too far.

 MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) — A northern Indiana man who had the Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan campaign logo tattooed onto his face “to make politics fun” says it’s time for it to come off.

Eric Hartsburg of Michigan City, Ind., says he plans to have the red-and-blue “R” removed from its prominent place next to his right eye.

He says a Republican supporter paid him $15,000 to get the tattoo and keep it until at least the election was over.

Weeks after President Barack Obama defeated the former Massachusetts governor in the Nov. 6 election, Hartsburg says “now to me it represents not a losing campaign, but a sore losing campaign.”

Hartsburg says he reached out to the Romney campaign about the tattoo, but feels snubbed that no campaign staffer ever contacted him.
