The chairman of Tennessee’s Democratic Party wants a Republican legislative aide fired for sending out a “reprehensible” e-mail depicting President Obama as two cartoonish white eyes peering from a black background.

Sherri Goforth, a Tennessee state senator’s aide, said she mistakenly sent the image “to the wrong list of people.”

Obama’s image is in the last square of a collage containing portraits of the previous 43 U.S. presidents. The e-mail, which was sent to other GOP staff members, was posted on the Internet Monday.

Sherri Goforth, an administrative assistant to state Sen. Diane Black, R-Gallatin, has admitted she sent the e-mail May 28 with the title “Historical Keepsake Photo.”

There was no comment from the White House as of Tuesday afternoon.

Sen. Diane Black rebuked Goforth but didn’t dismiss her.
