Although he says he has presidential aspirations, Gov. William Donald Schaefer was not impressed when his picture turned up on mock paper currency circulating through the State House in Annapolis.
The bogus bills feature a head shot of the governor -- reproduced from a photograph that accompanied an article in yesterday's Sun -- in the center space reserved on real money for United States presidents. The funny money was printed on green paper and bore the value "No Dollars" with zeroes in all four corners.
The governor blasted the newspaper for what he said was the intentionally publishing of an uncomplimentary photograph of him and suggested that was the reason an unidentified State House wag pulled off the currency caper. By his expression in the photograph, Schaefer appears to be angry.
