That didn’t take long.
A newly hired top tech adviser to potential 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush resigned under pressure Tuesday night after revelations about his arguably sexist and racist social media history.
“The Right to Rise PAC accepted Ethan Czahor’s resignation today,” said Bush spokeswoman Kristy Campbell in a statement to the Daily News.
“While Ethan has apologized for regrettable and insensitive comments, they do not reflect the views of Governor Bush or his organization and it is appropriate for him to step aside,” she said.
“We wish him the best.”
Czahor, founder of Hipster.com, was hired with much fanfare as part of likely 2016 hopeful Bush’s developing campaign, which released a slew of emails received and sent during his tenure as Florida governor.
News of Czahor’s hire was quickly met with questions about the cleansing of his Twitter account.
In 2009, Czahor tweeted that « most people don’t know that ‘halloween’ is German for ‘night that girls with low self-esteem dress like sluts.’ »
In 2011, he reported that « the golds gym in san francisco has a wide selection of free weights, machines, and men who undress you with their eyes while you work out. »
Bush on Tuesday made a huge point of being one of the most transparency-forward 2016 candidates by releasing a slew of emails he sent and received as Florida governor, along with the first chapter of an e-book about his experiences in politics.
The brother and son of two former Presidents is slated to be in Manhattan Wednesday for a fundraiser for his Right to Rise PAC at the home of financier Henry Kravis.
