An effigy of President Obama with a noose around his neck was tied to an electronic billboard along one of Duluth's busiest thoroughfares during the middle of the day on Election Day.

Duluth police were told about the effigy just after 1 p.m. today, Public Information Officer Jim Hansen said. The effigy was about 3 feet tall and had an Obama mask, Hansen said.

"It's meant to be offensive, obviously," Hansen said.
