Racist political fliers found in Morris County

Racist fliers targeting Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) were found over the weekend in Morris County.

The fliers, left on driveways in Roxbury, had unflattering and altered pictures of Obama and said "Do You Want A Black President?" and "Black Ruled Nations most unstable and violent in the world."

A group called the League of American Patriots says it published the fliers. The group has a post office box address in Butler. The group's Web site says it restricts membership to adult heterosexuals of European Christian ancestry.

One woman who received the flier said she was disturbed by the ad. She says the election is supposed to be about issues and that the group should show their faces and not try to be anonymous.
