Political Button Features Wrong Idaho Larry
DEBORAH AMOS, host:
Good morning. I'm Deb Amos. We have a campaign story about the wrong Idaho Larry. A button manufacturer intended to show Barack Obama with Larry LaRocco, a Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate from Idaho, but accidentally used the photo of Larry Craig, the Republican senator who was arrested in a sex sting at a Minnesota airport last year. The button is no longer available for purchase. Collectors snapped them up.
It's MORNING EDITION.
