How The Grinch Evades Blame for Stealing Christmas--
Today's Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Taylor Palmisano, putative author of the Black Friday e-mail solicitation, has been fired from the Walker campaign, allegedly due to anti-Latino tweets issued by her in 2011. Coincidental? I have my doubts.
On the other hand, this is the second time in four months a Walker aide has been let go for racist comments:In August, Walker removed Steven Krieser as his assistant deputy secretary at the state Department of Transportation after the Journal Sentinel contacted his office about Krieser's Facebook posts likening illegal immigrants to Satan in an extended rant. (Note: The Journal-Sentinel also takes credit for bringing the Palmisano tweets to the attention of the Governor's office.)Walker has been successfully "Teflon" about these sorts of things so far. None of the criminal behavior of his County Executive office staff has been brought home to him, but shouldn't people be wondering about his judgement in hiring people to work for him, at least?This entry was originally posted at http://sinister-sigils.dreamwidth.org/246945.html.
