SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — 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."

Davenport's number rang busy on Monday. She has sent friends and supporters an email saying she won't resign.
