but cartoons of Moon Jae-in and Ahn Cheol-soo having gay sex and jerking off are apparently OK, according to the Central Election Committee.

That would be the same Central Election Committee that ordered prosecutors to investigate a satirical painting of Park Geun-hye giving birth to a little Park Chung-hee.

And in today’s Legal WTF moment, a committee official explained that while the cartoons might constitute slander under criminal laws, they did not constitute slander under the election law, apparently because they are too abstract and therefore do not bring to mind any particular candidate.

Which is odd, because they don’t look very abstract to me.
