A senior editor at the New York Times apologized Thursday for "offensive" tweets from nearly a decade ago, as one Republican lawmaker called for his firing.
“I have deleted tweets from a decade ago that are offensive. I am deeply sorry,” New York politics desk editor Tom Wright-Piersanti said on Twitter after Breitbart News drew attention to the tweets.
