Should Obama be Killed? Poll sparks US Secret Service Probe
A poll posted on the social networking site Facebook asking if President Obama should be assassinated has prompted a Secret Service investigation, the Associated Press is reporting.
The Huffington Post has a screen shot of the poll. It asks, "should obama be killed?" The possible answers are "yes," "maybe," "if he cuts my health care" and "no."
"We are aware of it and we will take the appropriate investigative steps," Secret Service Darrin Blackford told the AP. "We take of these things seriously."
At least 730 people took the user-generated poll before it was removed by Facebook upon officials learning of its existence this morning. The company said the person who created the poll has been suspended from using the site and that it is working with the Secret Service.
