A Republican County official's e-mail linking Barack Obama to Muslim extremism is drawing Democratic protests. Geary County Treasurer Kathy Tremont forwarded the e-mail to her staff last week.
She says the e-mail related to issues she and others in the office had been talking about. Tremont says she has apologized to her staff for forwarding the e-mail.
Melody Saxton chairs the Geary County Democratic Central Committee, and says Tremont violated her staff's civil rights. She's asking the county commission to consider fining Tremont.
