Michael Harold’s plan to get rich has come a cropper.
Harold, who is from Denver, is driving a 10-foot-high Barack-Obama-in-a-Bottle around Denver, staying one step ahead of the police, who don’t seem that interested in enforcing the fact he doesn’t have a license to sell the smaller $19.95 versions.
Harold also has a few thousand McCain-in-a-Bottles but no way to sell them in St. Paul.
His brother-in-law, who let him borrow the pick-up truck, needs it back.
