In an apology over a digitally manipulated and extremely offensive image of President Obama, conservative blogger, former WBT radio host and former Creative Loafing columnist, Tara Servatius resigned. The John Locke Foundation, a conservative think tank, also apologized.
In her statement to the Charlotte Observer Servatius wrote: “I am genuinely sorry my inclusion of the photo along with my blog post has caused controversy for the John Locke Foundation. If it has offended anyone, I sincerely apologize for that. That was certainly not my intention. It was meant to illustrate Obama’s southern political strategy, nothing more.”
