WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) — The maker of a Sarah Palin mannequin says a would-be buyer backed out when he discovered its past as an effigy hung by a noose in a West Hollywood home’s Halloween display.

Professional window dresser ChadMichael Morrisette said the winner of the eBay auction thought he was buying a pro-Palin item until he heard a radio report about it.

Morrisette created the look-alike mannequin of the Republican vice presidential candidate and hung it from his home’s roof for Halloween. He removed it early out of safety concerns after the display prompted protests.

Morrisette told the Los Angeles Times the would-be sale price was more than $2,200. He hasn’t said whether he would auction the item again.
