Obama effigy in IE draws Secret Service visit

MORENO VALLEY, Calif.

According to the Press-Enterprise, Eddie Million meant it as a harmless prank. But the Secret Service said it could be seen as a threat against the president.

Million now admits the display was a bad idea, and he has since taken it down.

A similar effigy of Sarah Palin surfaced in West Hollywood just before the 2008 election. The homeowner took it down after protesters covered it up.
