Political Cartoon Campaign Caused EPA to 'Cry Uncle' in 1978
ULTIMATE SPANKING: THIS comic strip sparked the eventual capitulation of the EPA during its attempt to fine Kulpa's home town $18,000 over the removal of catalytic converters from its squad cars. Dick saw no sense in taxpayers footing that hefty bill, and his "EPA APE five-cartoon campaign" prompted congressmen and Senator Adlai Stevenson III to intervene on his city's behalf.
Ironically, this cartoon took issue with the local daily newspaper's "ivory tower" editorial position.
The "taxpayer" shown is a loose rendition of an editorial writer.
The power of the targeted political cartoon is indeed alive and well.

ABOUT DICK KULPA:
From school newspapers to weeklies, from dailies to national tabloids - and from staff work to syndication, Dick Kulpa has worn all the hats. In fact, Kulpa is one of but a handful of journalists to appear in both the national tabloids and mainstream dailies simultaneously -- from Weekly World News to the New York Daily News, Orange County Register, Hong Kong Standard, and more! A career cartoonist, Kulpa's earliest days saw him functioning as staff editorial cartoonist for the Loves Park, Illinois Post while simultaneously holding elective office - and this went on for ten years!
During his unusual career, Kulpa's comic strip work has been syndicated by the LA Times Syndicate and Tribune Media Services, Inc., and at one point appeared in the Moscow, Russia licensed variant of Weekly World News, (among others.)
Needless to say, Kulpa has acquired a unique, non-partison perspective.
