The California NAACP is demanding an apology from an Orange County GOP official who sent out an e-mail picturing President Barack Obama's face on the body of a baby chimpanzee.
In a statement Monday, the organization called on Marilyn Davenport to resign from the Orange County Republican Central Committee.
Several other black leaders were also holding a news conference to demand Davenport be thrown off the committee.
The message shows an image, posed like a family portrait, of chimpanzee parents and child, with Obama's face superimposed on the young chimp.
The text reads, "Now you know why no birth certificate."
