Oh well... A low level campaign staffer will likely get blamed for this!

Of course there was always this flag that flew for a short time in Florida
Note the lack of any white stars in a blue field. Flag Code concerns a U.S. Flag, which this image or the actual "Obama" Flag displayed at a Democratic Party building in central Florida is not.

United States Flag Code - Wikisource, the free online library
1. Flag; stripes and stars on

The flag of the United States shall be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red and white; and the union of the flag shall be forty-eight stars, white in a blue field.
2. Same; additional stars

On the admission of a new State into the Union one star shall be added to the union of the flag; and such addition shall take effect on the fourth day of July then next succeeding such admission.
