Obama Effigy Found in Georgia

A doll resembling President Barack Obama was found in Plains, Georgia, with a rope around its neck. The effigy was hung from a brick building on Main Street, in a popular tourist area dedicated to former President Jimmy Carter, with a sign bearing Obama's name. A few passers by snapped photos before the object was removed. Although the city is proud of its Carter patriotism, resident Trevor Sims says he wasn't surprised to hear about the incident. "It's a nice place to live and visit but some out there don't like it," he said. It is unclear whether the doll was a prank or a serious gesture. The Secret Service is investigating, but said they will not comment until next week.
