Milwaukee, WI – On Friday, many critics of the Scott Walker for President 2016 campaign began to question the new campaign logo for Walker after it was noticed that Walker’s E logo is very similar to the E logo for America’s Best Contact & Eyeglasses. Did the Walker for President campaign copy the logo?
A premature Tweet from the Walker campaign on Friday also shows the E logo and the tweet actually announced that Walker is running for President. The official presidential bid announcement for Walker is scheduled for Monday in Waukesha, Wisconsin, but the latest E logo controversy has tainted Walker’s campaign with an alleged E logo infringement, according to political critics and Democrats.
The Walker for President campaign hasn’t released a statement concerning the alleged copy right E logo infringement.
A customer care representative from America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses responded on Saturday in a Facebook post to Matthew J. Scholtes concerning their E logo and Walker’s presidential campaign E logo similarity, that they are “not affiliated, or sponsoring Republican Scott Walker. We are working with our Marketing team to resolve this situation.”
The America’s Best Tweeter account has exploded with tweets making reference to Walker’s #logogate. Walker’s campaign receives tens of thousands of donations and they can’t come up with an original logo of their own and he wants to become president.
Walker is the 15th Republican to filed his candidacy for president with the Federal Election Commission for the GOP nomination for President in 2016.
