Secret Service Says Kid Posted Obama Assassination Poll on Facebook

The person who posted a poll on the ever-popular Facebook social network last week asking whether President Obama should be assassinated is a kid.

Bloomberg news reports that the Secret Service determined that the juvenile doesn’t pose a threat.

The news service, attributing the information to Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan, said agents interviewed the youth and the parents, but declined to reveal names.

“We’re characterizing it as a mistake,” Donovan told Bloomberg. “We don’t have the luxury of discounting threats. We need to run every single referral out, and that’s what we do.”
