Wisconsin Governor Fires Aide for Anti-Latino Tweets

Facebook

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who is rumored to be gearing up for a 2016 presidential run, may want to rethink his hiring strategy. He recently fired a campaign aide for posting racist tweets, reports Gawker.

Taylor Palmisano, a 23-year-old campaign aide, was fired after previous tweets revealed her to have pretty racist (not to mention violent) thoughts. One tweet stated, "I will choke that illegal mex cleaning in the library. Stop banging f*cking chairs around and turn off your Walkman."

Another tweet stated, "This bus is my worst f*cking nightmare Nobody speaks English & these ppl dont know how 2 control their kids #only3morehours #illegalaliens."

What wonderful use of language! And we all know that illegal aliens, Mexicans, cleaning men and those who don't speak English are totally interchangeable, right? (We're being sarcastic.)
