Vote...or Die...

Warhol was convinced that this portrait he did for the McGovern campaign in '72 angered the Nixon administration so much that it led to Warhol being audited by the IRS for many years afterward...or it could have just been that by the early 70's, Warhol was making so much money and had so many different business ventures going that it was just business as usual for the IRS. Regardless, this is a great and iconic Warholian image.
