Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) was forced to terminate a campaign aide after her past racist Twitter rants against Latinos were found from 2011. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Taylor Palmisano, Walker’s deputy campaign finance director, was fired on Tuesday after activists discovered her revolting tweets about “illegal” people who were annoying her on the bus and in the library.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports:
[box type=”shadow”] 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.”[/box]
Palmisano has deleted her Twitter account. This isn’t the first time one of Walker’s aides was terminated for posting racist messages. Steven Krieser, assistant deputy secretary of the Wiscounsin department of transportation was fired after posting on Facebook comparing illegal immigrants to Satan.
[W]e get to be treated to the incredible chutzpah of hundreds of thousands of these criminals marching in the streets in broad daylight, demanding all the benefits of citizenship from a country whose laws they are breaking even as they are standing there. The illegals themselves have bred the animus that many American citizens feel toward them You may see Jesus when you look at them. I see Satan.
Krieser defended himself from critics by claiming “that opposition to illegal immigration generally is driven primarily by racism.”
At this point, it’s not even shocking to see these racist tweets from GOP affiliates. The most surprising part of this article is that Scott Walker actually fired these fools.
