Disturbing news from the Deep South, this time drawing the attention of the United States Secret Service.
A doll found hanging off a Main Street building in Plains is causing controversy.
Controversial enough to get the United States Secret Service involved.
Witnesses say it was an image of President Barack Obama with a rope around his neck, and the display was found hanging in one of the city’s most recognizable sites dedicated to former President Jimmy Carter.
A few people were able to snap pictures of the black doll before it was taken down.
The Chicago Sun-Times ties the image more closely to President Obama:
Television shows the doll hanging in front of a sign that says "Plains, Georgia. Home of Jimmy Carter, our 39th President." A witness said the doll had a sign with Obama’s name on it.
The Secret Service is handling the situation, and will not have a comment until next week, WALB reports.
