Mitt Romney is calling on a New Hampshire police commissioner to apologize and resign for using a racial epithet in reference to President Obama.

“The vile epithet used and confirmed by the commissioner has no place in our community: He should apologize and resign,” Romney said in a statement first reported by the Boston Herald.

Robert Copeland, the police commissioner of Wolfeboro, N.H., refused to apologize and sent a statement to his fellow commissioners after a resident complained to the town manager that she overheard the slur used by Copeland.

“I believe I did use the ‘N’ word in reference to the current occupant of the White House,” Copeland, 82, wrote to his fellow commissioners last week. “For this, I do not apologize — he meets and exceeds my criteria for such.”

Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, owns a vacation home in Wolfeboro and spends every summer with his family at the New Hampshire house.
