Cebull told the newspaper that his brother sent him the racist email which he then forwarded to six "old buddies" and acquaintances. A forwarded version of the email eventually made its way to a reporter at the Great Falls Tribune.

Cebull said he showed "very poor judgment" by forwarding the email and said it was "not intended by me in any way to become public."

He added that he "did not forward it because of the racist nature of it" although he acknowledged it was racist.

"The only reason I can explain it to you is I am not a fan of our president, but this goes beyond not being a fan," Cebull explained to the newspaper. "I didn't send it as racist, although that's what it is. I sent it out because it's anti-Obama."

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
