Man arrested for selling Obama condoms

NEW YORK, May 31 (UPI) -- New York police arrested a man for a third time for selling condoms bearing President Obama's image despite a court ruling in his favor.

Jose Andujar, 43, was arrested Friday in Times Square for selling the Obama condoms, and police said it was his third arrest for unlicensed peddling in the past year, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

A State Supreme Court justice previously ruled Andujar does not need a vending license to sell the condoms, and his products are protected under his First Amendment right to free speech.

However, police said Andujar will continue to be subject to arrest pending the outcome of the city's appeal.

Andujar uses politically themed slogans to sell his wares, including "It's the election, erection for your protection" and "It's the ultimate stimulus package for hard times."
