Obama effigy found hanging in hometown of Jimmy Carter

A report from in Albany, GA  says a doll representing Barack Obama was found hanging from a building in Plains, GA, the hometown of former President Jimmy Carter.

The Obama effigy was taken down, but not before several people had a chance to take pictures. The report says both the Plains Police Dept. and Sumpter Co. Sheriff's Dept. were notified and the Secret Service is investigating. The Secret Service said they will not comment on the effigy until later this week.

"People have seen it and have the pictures but no body is talking about it," Alonzo Davis, a Plains resident, told WALB. "I don't think it's right I don't know if it's someone horse playing or what."

Davis told WALB he saw the doll hanging off the brick building, and said a sign on the front had President Obama's name on it.

Apparently some Plains residents are concerned that no one seems to be talking about the incident.

"It's wrong what they did, but I'm not shocked to hear about it,"  Plains resident Trevor Sims told WALB. "It's a nice place to live and visit but some people out there don't like it."
