BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana State Senate employee has been suspended without pay after sending out an e-mail to hundreds of government workers showing President Barack Obama as white and suggesting that opposition to him doesn't equate to racism.

Several black lawmakers replied to the e-mail, complaining that it was offensive.

The message, sent by Senate researcher Tammy Crain-Waldrop, shows a photo of Obama made to look like a white man and says, "Do you like him any better now? No? Me neither ..... Then you're not a racist."

After she sent the e-mail, Crain-Waldrop sent another message apologizing and saying she sent it to the state Capitol e-mail post office box by mistake.

Senate spokeswoman Brenda Hodge says Crain-Waldrop has been suspended without pay pending an investigation.
