Secret Service investigating ‘Kill Obama’ Facebook poll


An online poll which asked if President Barack Obama should be assassinated is being investigated by the United States Secret Service.

The survey, posted on Facebook over the weekend, was immediately removed after company officials were alerted to its existence. It was put up on the social networking site using a third-party application that was not connected with Facebook itself.

The poll asked: “Should Obama be killed?” The answer choices: “No,” “Maybe,” “Yes” and “Yes if he cuts my health care.”

More than 700 respondents took the survey before it was shut down.

The Secret Service said it has launched an investigation of the poll to learn who was behind it and their intent.
