After Ray-Ban complaint, Rand Paul's campaign store

Among 12-packs of "Rand on a Stick" freedom paddles, NSA Spy Cam blockers, and other quirky paraphernalia, presidential candidate Rand Paul's online campaign store also sold a product at "the intersection of politics and cool" -- Rand-branded Wayfarer sunglasses. But after a complaint lodged by eyewear manufacturer Ray-Ban, the campaign store has pulled them from its virtual shelves.

Ray-Ban asks Rand Paul to stop selling ‘Rand’ Wayfarer sunglasses

Sen. Rand Paul's presidential campaign has reportedly stopped selling Ray-Ban Wayfarers imprinted with the "Rand" logo, after the sunglasses company complained that the campaign didn't have consent.
The $150 sunglasses, described on Mr. Paul's website as "the intersection of politics and cool," were for sale as recently as Tuesday, The Hill reported.
"We learned that the Rand Paul campaign had been selling Ray-Ban sunglasses imprinted with the 'Rand' logo without our consent," Jane Lehman, who handles corporate media at Ray-Ban's parent company Luxottica, told The Hill.
