HELENA — The chairwoman of Montana's Yellowstone County Republican committee denies she posted on her Facebook page a racist photo mocking President Barack Obama.
Jennifer Olsen says she has received dozens of calls and emails since a blogger last week claimed Olsen posted an image of a box propped up with a stick with a watermelon underneath.
The caption says "BREAKING NEWS: The Secret Service just uncovered a plot to kidnap the president."
Olsen said Monday the blogger who claims she posted the photo is lying and she has never made a racist joke or statement against the president.
Nobody answered at a phone number listed for blogger Nicole French. She did not immediately respond to an email.
French writes on her blog she is disappointed that Olsen continues to lie about her actions.
