Amateur artist George Zimmerman, who will always be best known as the Florida man responsible for the death of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin, sold his mediocre rendering of an American flag stock image for $100,099.99 on eBay. Twenty-four misguided souls made a combined 96 bids on the piece before the online auction closed on Saturday. The winner's identity is not yet known, but they can look forward to having the painter personally deliver their prize. Zimmerman, who recently avoided a domestic abuse charge, recently got all of his guns back, so he'll probably be happy to shoot some holes into his new patron's living room wall for art-hanging purposes, as well.
