Obama's New Ultimate Stimulus Pakage
Jose Andujar, 43, was arrested Friday in Times Square for selling contraceptives featuring the faces of President Obama and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on the wrappers, and police said it was his third arrest for unlicensed peddling in the past year.
The arrest came despite a State Supreme Court justice ruling that his rubbers are protected by the Constitution’s guarantee of free speech. The decision said that the condom wrappers should be treated like books, which do not require a vending license.
Andujar is reportedly a regular face in the center of the Big Apple where his sales pitches include, “It’s the ultimate stimulus package for hard times,” “Hope is not a form of protection,” and “Use with good judgment.”
The condoms featuring Palin’s face have the slogan: “When abortion is not an option.” It also notes: “Experience not necessary for use.
The condoms made their debut during the presidential campaign season of 2008, and have reportedly sold nearly 500,000 online at Obamacondoms.com.
Sen. John McCain, the Republican nominee in 2008, is also featured on a wrapper, with sell lines of: “Old, but not expired,” and “Wrinkled for her pleasure.”
