NEWBERG, Ore. (AP) -- 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 cardboard cutout of Obama early Tuesday at the Oregon school and removed it.
The effigy was accompanied by a message targeting participants of a minority student scholarship program called Act Six.
It read, "Act Six reject."
Baker says he met with the students in the Act Six program, who receive full scholarships, late Tuesday and plans to address the school's student body Wednesday.
