WOLFEBORO, N.H. - A police commissioner in New Hampshire is under fire after he referred to President Obama as the "n-word'.

A town resident claims Robert Copeland uttered the phrase aloud while dining at a restaurant late last year. It has many people calling for his resignation.

Copeland admitted using the slur in an e-mail to fellow police commissioners. He says he won't apologize for what he said and has no plans to resign.

The town manager said that he finds Copeland's comment "reprehensible", but he and the board of selectmen have no authority to remove and elected official.
