CHINA GROVE — Posters showing President Barack Obama in clown makeup showed up Tuesday on telephone poles along Main Street and surrounding neighborhoods.
The posters have been promoted by Alex Jones, a syndicated radio talk show host in Austin, Texas. He has been distributing the flyers on his Web site and urging listeners to videotape themselves as they post the pictures in public places.
Jones had offered a $1,000 prize to the creator of the “best” video.
Officials with the China Grove Police Department said they were not investigating the flyers and did not know who posted the pictures early Tuesday.
