WASHINGTON – The US Secret Service is investigating an effigy of President Barack Obama found hanging from a building in the hometown of ex-president Jimmy Carter, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on Monday.

The paper said footage from the local WALB-TV station showed 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."
