Roger Waters, A Floating Pig, and Obama 08

Indio police are reviewing actions Pink Floyd front man Roger Waters, who they believe was behind a stunt to drop political fliers over a 2-square-mile radius of homes outside the Coachella Music and Art Festival on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, there have been no sightings of a white two-story inflatable pig Waters released over Indio. Coachella organizers and Waters’ management are offering a $10,000 reward and four festival tickets for life, in exchange for its whereabouts and return.

Waters released his trademark Pink Floyd pig during the song “Pigs” with a picture of a sinister Uncle Sam holding bloody meat cleavers and graffiti reading, “Don’t be led to slaughter.”

Later, during Waters’ final performance of “Comfortably Numb,” a low-flying plane dropped hundreds of ticker-tape flyers urging concertgoers to vote for Democratic candidate Barrack Obama.

This Press-Enterprise story raises some curious campaign finance law questions.
