Republican Group's Controversial Obama Image Causes a Stir

LEESBURG, VA 11/1/2011 -- A local Republican group in Virginia is stirring up controversy with their latest ad which shows Democratic leaders-- including President Obama-- as zombies.

Adding insult to injury -- the zombie Obama had a bullet hole in its head.
It was sent as an email to Loudoun County Republicans. Many found it offensive: "That's terrible, I mean that's the president of the United States, that's so disrespectful and not even necessary," said Leesburg resident Stephanie DeBerry. "It's already out there...you can't take it back it's still a low blow," added fellow Leesburg resident Jim Roberts.

The group has since apologized for the images.
