A supporter of President Bush is suing the Republican National Committee and one of its suppliers, claiming they stole his design for the ubiquitous "W" bumper sticker logo in the 2004 campaign.

Jerry Gossett of Wichita Falls, Texas, says he pitched his design for a logo to the RNC's supplier of campaign materials, The Spalding Group of Lexington, Kentucky, in 2001 and to the RNC in 2003, and was turned down.

But in early 2004, he says, a similar logo appeared on a Web site and he traced it back to the RNC. This month, Gossett's Rally Concepts LLC sued in federal court, seeking unspecified damages for copyright infringement and conspiracy.

Tracey Schmitt, the RNC's press secretary, called the lawsuit frivolous.

------------------------------------------

Gossett says he is a loyal Republican and voted for Bush in 2000 and 2004, but has become jaded by his experience.

CNN reporting...the usual trivial stuff. I wonder how "loyal" this idiot will be now? He's wanting to make a fast buck off the neocons...won't happen...but if he's not got a copyright or one pending, he's not got a case...right?
