(Newser) – The Secret Service is investigating after a black doll wearing an "Obama" sign was found hanged from a sign on a storefront in Plains, Ga., Jimmy Carter's hometown. "It's wrong what they did, but I'm not shocked to hear about it," a Plains resident told WALB, the local NBC affiliate. The sign reads "Plains, Georgia. Home of Jimmy Carter, our 39th President."
