TURLOCK, Calif. -- The Secret Service is investigating a woman who used a racial slur to describe PresidentBarack Obama on Facebook and then commented about his possible assassination.
Denise Helms made the post right after the president won re-election Tuesday night.
In retrospect, Helms admits the assassination comment may have been kind of harsh, but says "if it was to happen I don't think I'd care one bit.
It's not something I would be upset about."
The Secret Service said all threats or perceived threats are taken seriously and investigated, but declined further comment.
