Rare sighting of kitschy Dimora mug

It's a thing of beauty, isn't it? I spotted this kitschy Jimmy Dimora mug in a downtown office today and immediately snapped a photo. It's at least vintage '90s, maybe '80s, from when Dimora was mayor of Bedford Heights. I think it's a communal office mug, since its owner is new in town: "Isn't he the guy who got in trouble?" he asked.

I want one of my own. But I guess I'll have to start hunting at Bedford Heights garage sales. I checked eBay, and the only Dimoriana I found was this T-shirt -- XL, of course -- from one of Jimmy's campaigns for commissioner, on sale for a patriotic $17.76.
