A Real Charmer: New Jeb Bush CTO’s Online Rants About Women, Gays, Drunk-Driving

February 9, 2015 4:28 p.m.

Ethan Czahor, who was named former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s chief technology officer for the ex-governor’s political action committee on Monday, has a history of posting derogatory comments about women and gay men on Twitter.

The tweets were highlighted by Buzzfeed a few hours after Time magazine broke the news that Czahor, the co-founder of Hipster.com, was moving to Bush’s likely 2016 presidential operation. After the Time story, the tweets from
@czahor began to disappear.

Here are some of Czahor’s now-deleted tweets:

Buzzfeed also captured a few before they were deleted.

A Bush aide said the governor asked for Czahor to delete the tweets.

“Governor Bush believes the comments were inappropriate,” Bush spokeswoman Kristy Campbell said in a statement to TPM. “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.”

Czahor later on Monday evening said he didn’t think the tweets were funny or appropriate.
