Tennessee Lawmaker Says Obama May Stage Fake Assasination

Tennessee state Rep. Kelly Keisling (R) emailed constituents "with a rumor circulating in conservative circles that President Barack Obama is planning to stage a fake assassination attempt in an effort to stop the 2012 election from happening," the Huffington Post reports.

Keisling "sent an email from his state email account to constituents containing a rumor that Obama and the Department of Homeland Security are planning a series of events that could lead to the imposition of 'martial law' and delay the election. Among the events hypothesized in the email is a staged assassination attempt on the president that would lead to civil unrest in urban areas and martial law."
