ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida prosecutor is apologizing for social media posts that included him referring to drug addicts as "crack hoes" and suggesting Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor "hit the quota lottery."
Kenneth Lewis, an assistant state attorney for Orange and Osceola counties, said Thursday that he "used a poor choice of words" and apologized to anyone who took offense to Facebook comments which he posted earlier this month.

Lewis said he thought that his posts from May 6 and May 11 were only to his friends network on the social website, and not visible to the general public.
State Attorney Jeff Ashton said he is not reprimanding Lewis because his office doesn't have a social media policy and that he doesn't police the private thoughts, views or expressions of his employees.
