Grooms said he spoke with state Sen. Chip Kimpson, D- Charleson, about the posts. Grooms said Miller apologized if the posts offended anyone but claims his account was hacked. One post used a racial epithet to describe former President Barack Obama according to the Associated Press.
Miller has been replaced by former councilman Paul Gawrych, Groom said.
