2 accused of hanging Obama effigy on Ky. campus
. . .the two men told detectives they decided to hang the effigy after seeing media reports about a Sarah Palin effigy in California.Yessir, and I also predict that opposition to any of (soon to be) President Obama's policies will be greeted with the accusation, "Well, you just don't like it 'cause you're a racist!"
Witnesses who saw the effigy Wednesday said it was life-sized with an Obama Halloween mask, a suit jacket and sweat pants. It was found hanging from a tree with a noose around its neck.
UK President Lee Todd said the effigy violates the university's code of ethics, and Fischer faces punishment that could include expulsion.
"As outrageous and offensive an act as the effigy was, I truly believe it has mobilized our campus, the community and the state in an effort to battle racism," Todd said Thursday.
