Kansas GOP volunteer resigns following tweet

A GOP volunteer resigns following a 41 Action News story about a controversial tweet.

Gavin Ellzey used to be the Third District Vice Chair for the GOP in Kansas.

In July, he tweeted from the handle @GavinGOP: 

“Offending Muslims is the duty of any civilized person. Especially with a .45.” 

The Kansas Republican Party Executive Director Clay Barker sent this statement to 41 Action News:

"The Kansas Republican Party has no responsibility for or connection to the public statements of private citizens who perform occasional volunteer work for the Party. The Republican Party in no way shares Mr. Ellzey's sentiment."

The Twitter account no longer exists.
