Obama effigy found hanging from building in Jimmy Carter's Ga. hometown

The U.S. Secret Service says it is investigating an effigy of President Barack Obama found hanging from a building in the Georgia hometown of former President Jimmy Carter.

Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan told The Associated Press on Sunday that the large black doll was found Saturday morning along Main Street in the small town of Plains.

Footage from WALB-TV shows the doll was hanging by a noose in front of a red, white and blue sign that says "Plains, Georgia. Home of Jimmy Carter, our 39th President." A witness told the station that the doll had a sign with Obama's name on it.

Mayor L.E. Godwin III says the volunteer fire department was called to take it down. He says he saw the doll but couldn't read the signs.

Donovan declined further comment.
