Man Cashes In On Border Controversy With Fake Bills

VALLEY CENTER, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A southern California man is hoping to cash in on the growing controversy regarding the U.S.-Mexican border with some funny money.

Michael Johnson has just created something called a “5 Dolares Border Bill” that is a “parody protest” designed to skewer politicians who won’t deal with the growing problems caused by illegal immigration.

The bogus bill features the faces of George W. Bush and Mexico’s President Vincente Fox as well as a promise that the note “is fully guaranteed to agitate, irritate and otherwise annoy the politically correct.”

Johnson sells a bundle of 25 fake bills for $5 each and while the gringo greenbacks aren’t legal tender, he suggests voters send the make-believe bills to politicians as a protest to how their handling the border issue.

In fact, Johnson is putting his own fake money where his mouth is. Today (Apr. 28), he is sending out 50,000 fake bills to politicos like Bush, Arnold Schwarzenegger and John McCain.
