Taftquack update:  An Ohio judge has allowed continued use of the Taftquack duck by the Hagan for Governor campaign (which duck was objected to by the AFLAC duck – see background).  This AP article quotes an AFLAC lawyer as arguing that Ohio voters will mistakenly think that AFLAC has endorsed the Hagan campaign.  In view of the increased traffic this suit has created for the taftquack.com site, there is the same affect as if AFLAC endorsed Hagan.

There is no indication whether the United Poultry Concern filed an amicus brief against AFLAC.
