Florida secretary of state resigns after photos of him in blackface emerge

Florida Secretary of State Mike Ertel abruptly resigned after photographs emerged of him in blackface dressed as a Hurricane Katrina victim. The photos were taken two months after the deadly storm ravaged the Gulf Coast region in 2005 and eight months after Ertel was appointed Seminole County supervisor of elections. The newspaper hasn’t said how it got the photos or identified the source.
