Jeb Bush is A-OK with having hired a Chief Technology Officer whom he asked to delete eyebrow-raising tweets.
Jeb Bush has hired Ethan Czahor, the man who created the photo-sharing site hipster.com, which was bought by AOL in 2012. Bush hails him as "a great talent in the tech world." But Buzzfeed's Andrew Kaczynski reports this afternoon that Czahor has been busy deleting compromising tweets, including those that call women "sluts," "chicks," and several that suggest Czahor thinks gay men at the gym want to sleep with him. Several dozen, Kaczynski reports, have been deleted.
One, which Buzzfeed captured before it was deleted, reads:
new study confirms old belief: college female art majors are sluts, science majors are also sluts but uglier.
today i spotted a chick carrying a book, and i checked out the title of the book before i checked her out. what's happening to me!?
when i burp in the gym i feel it's my way of saying , "sorry guys, but i'm not gay"
Curiously, this was not deleted:
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

"Governor Bush believes the comments were inappropriate," a Bush spokesman told BuzzFeed News, Kaczynski reports. "They have been deleted at our request. Ethan is a great talent in the tech world and we are very excited to have him on board the Right to Rise PAC."
Perhaps Czahor should have been a bit more thorough. NCRM found this tweet, ironically:

A look at what appears to be Czahor's page at the social media site Quora shows someone interested in male vs. female website design, Ayn Rand, and calling a former Hipster co-worker a "homo":
Czahor responds, conveniently neglects to mention he was instructed to delete those tweets.
