Regarding Hiram Monserrate’s use of the Obama logo, we just heard the following from OFA:
“This use of the logo is neither approved nor supported by Organizing for America. The campaign did not seek nor do they have permission to use the it. We are asking them to remove it from their materials.”
Considering that being expelled from the Senate didn’t seem to influence him, we’ll have to see if Monserrate complies…

Not only have they not stopped using the logo yet, but Monserrate’s campaign has launched a brand new
(not entirely functional) website, using the logo in multiple places, including the site’s favicon:
The updated website makes no mention whatsoever of the coup or his expulsion.
Its tagline is “Leadership That Works for Us!”
It also includes this bit of irony:
Bring it on Hiram.
Apparently Ben Smith provoked the original response from OFA after which we received the same statement.
