Green Co. Commissioners Target Of Prank

WAYNESBURG, Pa. (AP) – The commissioners of a southwestern Pennsylvania county are the apparent targets of a prank in which they're listed as sponsoring a “Winner Take All Cock Fight”.

Greene County Commissioner Archie Trader and the county's solicitor say they both received the fliers in their home mail boxes, as did other residents.

The solicitor, Cheryl Cowen, says she's turned the flier over to police who are dusting it for fingerprints. The flier also listed the name and home phone number of another county employee as the “contact person” for the fictional May 12 event.

The commissioners tell the Observer-Reporter of Washington, Pa. they don't know if the flier is related to complaints they've received about a socalled sex camp where swingers reportedly gather – but the location of the phony cock fight is next to that camp.
