Obama effigy hanged in Jimmy Carter’s home town

The US Secret Service says it is investigating after an effigy of Barack Obama was found hanging in the home town of former President Jimmy Carter.

The BBC  Monday, 4 January 2010

TV footage showed the doll hanging by a noose in front of a red, white and blue sign that reads “Plains, Georgia. Home of Jimmy Carter, our 39th President”.

Witnesses said the effigy had President Obama’s name on it.

Plains Mayor L.E. Godwin III said the fire department had been called to take it down.

In Washington, US Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan confirmed that the agency was investigating the case.

    businessman in the article have been more bland!  This is terrible…and sad.  I wonder if President Carter will make a statement.  On the one hand, you don’t want to create a show of it – on the other, controversial, unpopular statements have never stopped him before.
