GOP official resigns over zombie ad

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The communications director for the Loudoun County Republican Party now admits he was behind the mass e-mail that featured a picture of President Obama as a zombie with a bullet hole in his head.

The image was roundly condemned by political leaders across the commonwealth.

Rob Jesionowski apologized for sending the picture out and has stepped down from his position.
