The US Secret Service is investigating a poll posted on social networking site Facebook, asking people if they think President Obama "should be killed".
The poll, posted on Saturday, was taken off the site as soon as the company was made aware of it.
It was put up on the site using a third-party application that was unconnected with the social networking site itself.
US Officials will take "the appropriate investigative steps," a spokesman said.
The poll, described by Facebook as "offensive", asked respondents "Should Obama be killed?" and offered four possible responses: "No", "Maybe", "Yes", and "Yes if he cuts my health care".
Really, I have to wonder what the poll creator was smoking.
I also wonder if authorities are gonna try to investigate anyone who answered the poll, if that is even possible.
