From the Colorado Springs Gazette:
An art piece that combines the face of President Lincoln with the face of Sen. Barack Obama can remain on the walls of local businesses.
. . . . . . . .
After a short investigation, the department decided that "Abraham Obama" is art and not a political endorsement, which would have violated city sign ordinances.
"It was decided that it was a mural," said Sue Matz, revocable permits coordinator for Colorado Springs.
