WI Gov. Scott Walker Aide Fired For Racist, Anti-Latino Tweets
This is the second time since last summer that the Wisconsin governor has had to let someone go for this kind of public display.
…Taylor Palmisano, Walker’s deputy campaign finance director, was let go Tuesday after activists pointed out her old grumpy “fuck”-filled tweets about “illegal” people who were bothering her on the bus and in the library by being… well, just by being…
Palmisano has since deleted her Twitter account. This was the second such firing since August, when another Walker aide—Steven Krieser, assistant deputy secretary of the Wisconsin department of transportation—lost his job after writing on Facebook that illegal immigrants were the spawn of Satan:
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports:
In one, Palmisano, 23, complained about an individual who was doing custodial work in a library in which she was working.
“I will choke that illegal mex cleaning in the library. Stop banging (expletive) chairs around and turn off your Walkman,” she posted on March 9, 2011.
Two months earlier, she went to Twitter to write about her bus trip from Pasadena, Calif., to Las Vegas after watching the Wisconsin Badgers play in the Rose Bowl: “This bus is my worst (expletive) nightmare Nobody speaks English & these ppl dont know how 2 control their kids #only3morehours #illegalaliens.”
