North Carolina’s top liquor regulator resigned Tuesday after sending an e-mail that reportedly showed a watermelon patch outside an altered photo of the White House.
Gov. Beverly Perdue demanded and received the resignation of Alcoholic Beverage Commission Chairman Douglas A. Fox after the e-mail mocking the first black U.S. president was shown to Perdue’s staff.
“I have accepted Doug Fox’s letter of resignation. E-mails and images of this nature are offensive and unacceptable,” Perdue said in a statement.
