Z boys takes his assholery to another level.

Painting-Gate …
As reported in the New York Magazine, yesterday morning, with follow up on Wonkette and Mediaite, it appears that George may have “taken” his idea for “his”“liberty and justice for all” artwork, currently sitting at a bid of $99,966 on eBay, from a stock photo.

George Zimmerman: From Killer To Plagiarizing Scam Artist?

http://www.newscorpse.com/ncWP/...

For someone who has been in trouble with the law on several occasions since his famous acquittal, Zimmerman has an abundance of gall to insult the family of his victim and the civil libertarians who believe that a teenager’s death should not be swept under a legal carpet. And for him to come out with what appears to be a plagiarized work of “art” in an effort of profit from his infamy, and another family’s tragedy, is further evidence of his depraved character.
eBay should not permit this auction to proceed. It is an affront to a family still in mourning and a violation of the copyright of Shutterstock and the artist who provided the original work. Should the auction conclude, the funds should be sequestered and held until the resolution of any wrongful death suits that may be filed by Trayvon’s family.

Liberals made Zimmerman a celebrity. Now he's cashing in despite them.

You idiots can't do anything right.

Let me see if I got this straight. You are not only a federal law expert, but a states law expert on all 50 states (or as Obama say 57 states). You are also an expert on Obamacare, healthcare, insurance industry, business, all religions, gun control, climate control, population control, animal control, foreign affairs, government affairs, public affairs, private affairs, personal affairs, extramarital affairs. Now on top of this your a self proclaimed art expert!? Get a life.

We all know he don't know none of that sh*t but you can't blame him for attention seeking. He just doesn't get that much attention at the Rainbow club anymore ever since that unfortunate piercing accident.

You couldn't spot a fraud or a scam artist if it walked into the white house.
