Republican looting: These guys are such thieves, they steal from their own 

But who is the thief?

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

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

"The big RNC against little me, there was absolutely no chance to win," he said.
(via ABC)

Personally, from the descriptions of the two logos, I don't think Gossett has a case. In fact, it's surprising to me that the suit was brought. So maybe the "loyal Republican" is the would-be thief—and he, and his party, deserve each other.
