ORLANDO, Fla., June 29 (UPI) -- Sixty city vehicles in Orlando, Fla., were spray-painted with hate messages against likely Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, police say.

The message, "Obama smokes crack," was painted onto official vehicles parked across the street from Orlando City Hall, WKMG-TV in Orlando reported Sunday.

Customized business cards also were found near the damaged vehicles. They reportedly contained negative messages about the Illinois senator and probable the Republican presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona. However, the TV station said, there were business cards with positive words about former presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y.

Officials said Orlando police were investigating the incident and the business cards.
