GOSHEN - The head of the Orange County Republican Party has resigned in the wake of allegations he sent racy text messages to a young woman.

Members of the republican committee called for Robert Krahulik to step down because he allegedly sent lewd pictures of his private parts to his girlfriend's friend.

Krahulik's resignation is effective immediately. He had only been in the job for six months.

He will be replaced by the party's first vice chairman, Courtney Canfield-Greene, for the remainder of his term, which ends in the fall of 2015.
