Obama Hate Messages

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Florida authorities say vandals caused about $10,000 in damage when they spray-painted dozens of city vehicles in Orlando, some with messages against Illinois Senator Barack Obama.

The 60 cars were parked across from city hall yesterday. Investigators say the culprits tagged notes such as "Obama smokes crack" and a racial epithet. They even left business cards on each vehicle.

At least three cars had anti-Obama messages, while the others were just heavily painted.

Officials think the vandalism occurred yesterday afternoon.

The business cards disparage both Obama and Senator John McCain. But they had messages of support for Senator Hillary Clinton.

Police also found that many of the vehicles had open gas tanks.
