Pizza Owner: No Plans to Sue Democratic Party

More

As noted yesterday, the Democratic National Committee has conjured up a new logo that looks suspiciously like that of Dewey's Pizza, a small Ohio-based pizza chain where I used to work. However the owner of Dewey's, Andrew E. DeWitt, assures me he has no plans to sue the party.


"I'm not the lawsuit type of person, you know. If anything, it's a little bit of free publicity for us," DeWitt told me, noting during our conversation that "going out for pizza isn't a political process."

DeWitt did agree that the DNC's new logo looks, basically, the same as his.

"It's a piece of work. It looks just like the Dewey's logo, doesn't it?" DeWitt asked.

Indeed it does.


UPDATE: While no legal action is in the works, Dewey's plans to gently mock the DNC for its new logo. In what DeWitt hopes will result in good-natured amusement rather than political vitriol, the pizza chain is plannig to post the following modified DNC logo to its website:
