There's a sculpture controversy brewing

Thursday, September 06, 2012

There's a sexting controversy in a Kansas City suburb -- over a statue.

The American Family Association is collecting petition signatures in opposition to the scuplture titled "Accept or Reject."

The bronze work depicts a woman with an open blouse taking a picture of herself with a cellphone.

The statue is on display at the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens.

Opponents contend it violates anti-obsecinty laws and should be investigated by a grand jury.

The Kansas City Star reports petitions with about 4,700 signatures have been turned over to Johnson County, Kansas, election officials.
