ST. LOUIS — A spokeswoman for Congressman Russ Carnahan is expressing concern after a coffin that was used as part of a protest against health care reform ended up in the lawn of the Democrat's St. Louis home.

Communications director Sara Howard said about a dozen people brought the coffin to Carnahan's residence Sunday night, held a vigil there, then took the coffin away. Carnahan voted in favor of the health care reform package.

Howard told KSDK-TV that there can be disagreement on health care reform without resorting to threats and intimidation.
