Art Litigation: Pornucopia Scandal and Regulation of Nudity in Art

The Pornucopia gallery show is creating a furor on New York's Lower East Side. Artinfo reports here on New York City's growing prudery and Congressman Anthony Weiner's attempt to remove a 90 year-old statue from a Queens plaza. More from CBS and video here.

Here is a link to an AP story on former AG John Ashcroft concealing the breasts of the statutes at the Justice Department, Congressman Weiner's action is reminiscent of Ashcroft's move.

Weiner has long harbored mayoral ambitions, spending his time, money and energy on attacks on public art appear to be part of his vision for New York City.
