SEASIDE HEIGHTS - (AP) - Operators of a Jersey Shoreboardwalk game have removed a mannequin representing PresidentBarack Obama.
It has been replaced by effigies of former President George W.Bush and Hillary Clinton.
Manager Tom Whalen says it's to show the "Walkin Charlie" gameisn't "anti-Democrat or "anti-Republican."
The game requires patrons to throw baseballs at plates held bythe rotating caricatures.
A plastic bag was placed over the Obama character's head aftersome people earlier this week said it was disrespectful to use thepresident's likeness.
Whalen says a Secret Service agent visited the Seaside Heightsconcession on Wednesday and told him none of his employees hadurged patrons to throw at or hurt Obama.
Whalen says the Obama figure might return in a few weeks.
