Obama effigy found hanging on Ore. campus

NEWBERG, Ore. — Officials of a Christian university say a life-size effigy of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was hung from a tree on the campus.

NEWBERG, Ore. — Officials of a Christian university say a life-size effigy of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama was hung from a tree on the campus.

George Fox University President Robin Baker says a custodian discovered the effigy of Obama early Tuesday and removed it.

Baker says the cardboard cutout of Obama was accompanied by a message targeting participants of a minority student scholarship program called Act Six.

It read, "Act Six reject."

Baker says students in the program receive full scholarships.

He says he met with the students in the Act Six program late Tuesday and planned to address the school's student body today.
