Jeb Bush’s digital guru resigned Tuesday amid a firestorm of controversy after the aide’s racially insensitive comments surfaced and threatened to undermine the GOP presidential hopeful’s bid for the White House in 2016, according to the Washington Post.

The man, Ethan Czahor, hired as chief technology officer for Bush’s Right to Rise political action committee in preparation for Bush’s likely presidential bid, made a string of inflammatory remarks in 2008 on the website of his college radio show, the Washington Post writes:

The comments, first reported Tuesday afternoon by The Huffington Post, included Czahor’s praise for the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. for not speaking in “jibberish” nor wearing “pants sagged to his ankles,” as well as commentary that “black parents need to get their sh@# together” because too many black babies were being born into single-parent households.

Within a few hours of the revelations, Czahor, a co-founder of Hipster.com, offered his resignation and Bush accepted it. “The Right to Rise PAC accepted Ethan Czahor’s resignation today,” Bush spokeswoman Kristy Campbell said in a statement. “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. We wish him the best.”

    This is where “free speech” goes wrong. He didn’t apologize for how he felt just regrets saying what he said out loud. Good riddins.
