Arizona Republican Solar Advocates Punked With Pro-Obama Logo Used in News Release

A news release published for a pro-solar-energy Republican group features a fake, pro-Obama logo for the group that was created by its critics.

Tuesday's post about the news release on Rose Law Group's website would appear to erase any doubt that TUSK, fronted by Jason Rose and Barry Goldwater Jr., has been grafted to President Obama's non-profit Organizing for Action.

More likely, the fake logo was picked up inadvertently as a convenient illustration for the news release.

In other words, TUSK and Rose Law Group got punked.
