SEASIDE, N.J. — Operators of a boardwalk game in the town where the MTV reality show "Jersey Shore" is filmed have removed a caricature of President Barack Obama.
Replacing it are likenesses of former President George W. Bush and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Manager Tom Whalen said it's to show that the "Walkin Charlie" game, which requires patrons to throw baseballs at the rotating caricatures hold, isn't "anti-Democrat or "anti-Republican."
A plastic bag was placed over the Obama character's head after some people complained this week that it was disrespectful to use the president's likeness.
A Secret Service agent visited the concession Wednesday and told him none of the employees had urged patrons to throw at the Obama likeness, Whalen said.
The Obama figure might return in a few weeks, he said.
