HOUSTON — The FBI and Secret Service are investigating a cartoon sent to Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee that depicted her and President Barack Obama being lynched.
The Houston Chronicle reports:
Beneath a headline which included a racial epithet referring to African-Americans, the one-page cartoon showed two L-shaped lynching posts with “Sheila Jackson Lee” written on one cross bar and “Hussein Obama” written on the second cross bar. The president’s full name is Barack Hussein Obama.
The return address on the fax said: “Defecating on Obama.”
