NJ County GOP Chairman Apologizes for Sexist, Anti-Muslim Posts
Some of the tweets used sexist slurs for four Democratic congresswomen and called them "radical terrorists," while another called for eradicating Islam in America

A county Republican Committee chairman in New Jersey who retweeted anti-Muslim and sexist posts on the committee's account has apologized for the content.

Jerry Scanlan said in a statement Monday that he didn't thoroughly read some tweets before retweeting them from the Sussex County GOP account.

He said he doesn't hold "negative feelings of hate towards anyone."

Some of the tweets used sexist slurs for four Democratic congresswomen and called them "radical terrorists." The congresswomen were the object of a racist tweet by President Donald Trump.

Another tweet called for eradicating Islam in the U.S.

The Sussex County Republican Committee says Scanlan is no longer involved in the group's social media platform.

Scanlan is on the board of trustees of Sussex County Community College. NJ.com reports the school is investigating the matter.
