Congressman John Lewis' new campaign gear is mugshotty, awesome

Posted By on Wed, May 9, 2012 at 12:30 PM

Whether he's jogging in Atlanta's pride parade, getting arrested at rallys for Darfur, or hanging out at indie craft markets, 71-year-old congressman John Lewis excels at demonstrating how cool he is, particularly for a septuagenarian politician.

He's been arrested 40 times since the 1960s, for a variety of civil and human rights causes, and it's a thing he wears as a badge of honor, so much so that the new campaign gear he's selling via Facebook features an old mugshot and the motto, "Getting into good trouble since 1960."


That's the poster, which comes autographed for $30. There are also T-shirts featuring the mugshot for $30. Lewis is up for reelection in July.
