Bush technology chief quits in wake of insensitive comments

Posted:
 WASHINGTON (AP) -- A day after apologizing for making insensitive remarks on Twitter, the technology chief of Jeb Bush's presidential campaign-in-waiting has resigned.

Ethan Czahor was hired in January as chief technology officer of the former Florida Republican governor's Right to Rise political action committee.

Before he was hired, he had posted messages on his personal Twitter account that referred to women as "sluts" and made remarks about gay men.

He resigned after racially insensitive comments were found on a website attributed to Czahor.

Bush spokeswoman Kristy Campbell says it was "appropriate for him to step aside."

Czahor said in a Twitter messages late Tuesday that he hoped his "recent news won't dissuade future techies from entering politics."
