Ward Churchill: Art Forger?

A story, complete with damning photos, by Colorado television station CBS4 seems to show that embattled University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill made a mirror image of artwork by late artist Thomas E. Mails and signed it as his own:
Placing Churchill's work beside that of renowned artist Thomas E. Mails and the two look like mirror images. But one is a copyrighted drawing. The other is an autographed print by Churchill.
When confronted by a reporter and cameraman for the CBS4, Churchill flew into a snit and refused to comment about the artworks.

Churchill is already under fire for repeatedly referring to victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks as "little Eichmanns" and implying that they deserved to die.
