Washington (AP) -- The creator of an Anti-Hillary Clinton internet ad has stepped forward.
He's a Democratic operative who worked for a digital consulting firm with ties to rival Senator Barack Obama.
Philip de Vellis tells the Associated Press that he was the creator of the video. It portrays Clinton as a Big Brother figure and urges support for Obama's presidential campaign.
De Vellis says he resigned from the firm Wednesday after he learned that he was about to be unmasked by the Huffingtonpost.com, a liberal news and opinion internet site.
De Vellis says he produced the ad outside of work and neither his former employer nor the Obama campaign was aware of his role in the ad.
