McArtist Thomas Kinkade’s A Groper?

“Mr. Kinkade’s memory was fuzzy when he was asked during the arbitration proceedings about a signing party in Indiana in August 2002. By various accounts, most of the partyers overindulged, including Mr. Kinkade and Mr. Cote. At one point, according to testimony and interviews with Mr. Cote and three others who were there, Mr. Kinkade polled the men in the room about their preferences in women’s anatomies. During that discussion, according to arbitration records, Mr. Kinkade groped one of the women at the party. Others at the party said they also saw the alleged groping” — Dallas Morning News, from today.

DFO: I learn from this blog regularly, too; ferexample, Green Libertarian posted a comment that pointed out that revered fuzzy-light artist Thomas Kinkade stands accused of groping a woman and other questionable behavior. I challenged him on the claim. And Fourth Paddler and he both produced online evidence to back it up. It certainly causes me to view Kinkade in a different light. I wonder if this will affect his incredible earnings or the proposed Lake Coeur d’Alene development featuring homes modeled after his work?
