Battle over the "O" logo

O, boy.

The executive director of the Democratic Party in Maine is accusing a Republican who's considering a run for governor of stealing the stylized "O" from President Barack Obama's Web site.

Arden Manning says Les Otten's "O" is a close copy of one on the Obama Web site.

The attack isn't sitting well with Otten. He says the Democratic Party appears to have forgotten that others have noted the Obama "O" looks like the Pepsi logo.

But he also says his exploratory committee didn't copy anyone's Web site. He says it was built "from scratch" by a local company.
