Yes, you read that headline correctly. A voodoo doll! And it isn't even a big scary one, I can't find a picture of the actual doll anywhere on-line (maybe later tonight if it makes it to work's website) but it's this tiny little thing. Kinda like this one. It's absurd!
Apparently it was on this guy's desk in his office and the town clerk lady found it (snooping much?) and brought it to the council meeting.
