Ethan Czahor, a newly-hired aide to Jeb Bush's campaign-in-waiting, resigned today after controversy about his past offensive tweets and remarks.
Czahor was to be Bush's chief technology officer. He had co-founded the website Hipster.com, a social network eventually purchased and then phased out by AOL.
But reporters soon noticed that Czahor had a history of tweets and comments joking about women, gays, and blacks. Bush's team deemed his remarks "insensitive" and, one day after Czahor's hiring was first reported, announced that he had stepped down.
Reporters didn't take long to notice that Czahor had a history of tweets and comments that seemed out of place for a presidential campaign aide.
As Andrew Kaczynski of BuzzFeed News reported, several of these tweets joked about "sluts," including one that read, "New study confirms old belief: college female art majors are sluts, science majors are also sluts but uglier." Others referenced gays — Czahor tweeted that a San Francisco Gold's Gym was full of "men who undress you with their eyes while you work out."
