BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — A Louisiana State Senate employee has been formally reprimanded and suspended for a month without pay because she sent an e-mail to hundreds of government workers that appeared to try to show US President Barack Obama as white.

Senate President Joel Chaisson announced the punishment Tuesday for Senate researcher Tammy Crain-Waldrop. She can return to work Jan. 3 and must send a written apology to Senate and House staff and lawmakers. She also will have to attend diversity training.

Crain-Waldrop sent a message that included a doctored photo of Obama with light skin and says, "Do you like him any better now? No? Me neither ..... Then you're not a racist."
