MINNESOTA: Obama Opponent Murders Cat, Secret Service Investigating
The Secret Service is investigating after a cat was found burned to death and propped up next to an Obama campaign yard sign. The display was found near a Minneapolis polling location for today's local primaries.
A threat to President Obama in the form of a burned cat staked to a tree stump drew officers from several city and federal agencies to a south Minneapolis park before dawn on Monday. The cat's carcass in Longfellow Park was staked with a handheld American flag on a small stick, according to a federal law enforcement official. Standing next to the cat was an Obama/Biden 2012 lawn sign, the official said. No arrests have been made. Obama's official schedule Monday shows him leaving Chicago for Omaha and then on to Boone, Iowa, about 230 miles south of Minneapolis.The cat was found by a Parks Department employee.
