The National Endowment for the Arts is in hot water with conservative politicians. Again. In August, allegations surfaced that the NEA’s communications director Yosi Sergant had participated in a conference call with representatives of the art community, trying to get them to push the president’s agenda. Now, Glenn Beck, Lou Dobbs and other right-wing commentators are attacking the NEA from all sides. Republicans are using the scandal as a club with which to beat the Obama administration.
