When President Barack Obama stops by the Los Angeles home of “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes for a $32,400-per-plate fundraising dinner Wednesday, he’ll be greeted with a list of some of his own “Scandals” as part of a rogue campaign by an L.A. street artist.
Specially adorned bus benches featuring Obama’s face and the words “Benghazi,” “NSA,” “Fast & Furious,” “Solyndra” and other controversies started appearing Monday night near the studio where the ABC television show is produced.
Some initially assumed it was the work of Sabo, the artist Glenn Beck brought to his audience’s attention last month.
Sabo denied that it was his work, but said he knows who did it.
“I literally trained them how to do it,” Sabo told TheBlaze. “They showed me the art a couple of weeks ago and I thought the branding was weak and told them so.”
Sabo said he did provide some technical expertise, including about the size and type of poster to print on.
He said the crew that put up the “Scandals” artwork told Sabo he would be involved in the installation, but that they changed plans and mounted the campaign a day earlier than planned.
“I honestly thought I was gonna be in on it and do it … but for whatever reason, they did it early. I just could have helped them do a better job,” he said.
He also tweeted a review about the way the art was mounted.

Sabo told TheBlaze he is currently working on several new political art projects, including one called “Ted Cruz, Vampire Slayer.”
